Arsenal star Mesut Ozil mesmerised fans in Singapore during an open training session the players took part in by producing a lovely piece of skill in a training drill.
With the players tasked to keep the ball in a tight space, Ozil embarrassed Laurent Koscielny before finding Per Mertesacker with a clever back heel.
Ozil is yet to feature for us in pre-season as he partakes in his first tour with us since his arrival in 2013 but is expected to feature against Everton in the Barclays Asia Trophy final.
Arsene Wenger suggested that the players who returned late would play in the second game, and a good week of preparation should prepare those players for a tough encounter.
“Some players are only coming back on Friday. Most of those will only play in the second game,” Wenger told Arsenal Player.

Ozil, like many of our players, is set for a big season after suffering one of his most severe injuries with a knee problem keeping him out for three months last season.
With a full pre-season under his belt, the German wizard can hopefully show many why we made him our record signing in 2013.
