Mesut Ozil And Simon Mignolet – Two Players Who Took Premier League By Storm

The summer transfer window saw Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City doing stellar business while Chelsea and Arsenal fared well strengthening the squad.  Manchester United have had a lack lustre window managing to add Marouane Fellaini as the only high-profile player to the squad.

Soccer Souls will take a look at two players who have already impressed with their new club in the premier league.

Mesut Ozil

Ozil was signed from Real Madrid in the final days of the transfer window, which saw Arsenal make a club record transfer fee of £42.5m in bringing the German international to the Emirates.

The 24-year-old made his debut against Sunderland at Stadium of Light and it took him 10 minutes to mark his presence for the Gunners. Ozil registered his first assist as his brilliant pass from the left saw Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud put the ball behind the Black Cats keeper.

Ozil has made four appearances in the league so far and has already made three assists, but is yet to open his scoring for his new club in the top flight football league in England. The German midfielder’s arrival from the Spanish capital has lifted everyone in the club and has boosted the Emirates club’s chances of winning a trophy this season.

After seven league games, Arsenal are on top of the league table with 16 points.

Simon Mignolet

Brendan Rodgers signed Simon Mignolet from Sunderland to provide competition for Liverpool’s keeper Pepe Reina. The arrival of Belgium international saw the former Valencia man being off-loaded as the Spaniard was sent on loan to Napoli.

Mignolet has been impressive during the pre-season for the Reds and continued his earlier form after the Premier League started. The 25-year-old keeper has started in seven league games and has conceded only five goals this season.

In addition to this, the Belgium keeper has managed three clean sheets and has seen Liverpool in the top four.  The Reds are second in the table and are level on points with Arsenal, whose better goal ratio is separating the two teams.

Should Mignolet continue his form in front of goal, he could put Liverpool in the firm position to qualify for the champions league this season.
