Ozil, starting his first league game since October following a knee injury, was lively, producing a deft flick to set up Giroud for the first goal eight minutes into the first half.

Villa's bogeymanAll four of the goals Mesut Ozil has been involved in this Premier League season have been against Aston Villa (two goals, two assists).

Walcott also continued his rehabilitation in impressive fashion, adding to his goal in the FA Cup win wholesale nhl jerseys at Brighton last week with a curling finish from inside the box.

And Cazorla capped off another fine display by firing a penalty through the grasp of Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan, who had wholesale nba jerseys fouled substitute Chuba Akpom.

Bellerin has been quietly establishing himself as an effective full back in recent weeks and his low, driven goal from more than 30 yards out in stoppage time was arguably the pick of the bunch.
