Mesut Ozil is taking great pleasure from his start to life at Arsenal and believes the Gunners have what it takes to win the Premier League.

The German midfielder has wasted no time adapting to life in England, helping Arsene Wenger’s team to set an early pace in the top flight.

As reported by Bild and via ESPN, the German midfielder thinks Arsenal can capitalise on their current five-point lead to capture the Premier League crown:

"Why not? If you have a five-point lead after ten games, you also have the makings to end the season on top," Ozil told the German magazine.

The 25-year-old's £42.5 million transfer from Real Madrid has considerably galvanised Arsenal’s ranks, the player making an immediate impact upon his arrival.

Ozil has contributed three goals and five assists in 10 games, per, fitting in with the North London club’s passing style with little trouble. He is already a key member of the squad and will play a major role in any Emirates success this season.

Wenger continues to lavish praise on Ozil and recently compared the player to Real Madrid legend Zinedine Zidane.

As reported by Telefoot and via Chris Davie of, the Frenchman believes his creative player even outshines Zizou when in possession:

"Ozil has a special quality, he always takes the right decision quickly," Wenger said. "Ozil is a bit better at dribbling than Zidane. They have a similar form of technical ease and similar humility."

Such kind words are obviously rubbing off on the player, who is already feeling at home away from the Bernabeu heat, per ESPN’s report:

"Frankly. Everything at Arsenal is great fun," Ozil said. "The manager, the teammates, London life - I feel really great there."

Next up for Wenger and Ozil is a tricky trip to face Borussia Dortmund. Arsenal desperately need a win to keep their Champions League hopes on track and face a difficult examination at the Westfalenstadion.

Defeat would mean the home tie against Marseille and away trip to Napoli must be won if Arsenal are to escape the so-called "Group of Death."

Gunners fans will desperately hope the side can gain revenge on a Dortmund outfit that triumphed 2-1 at the Emirates on Oct. 22.

Should Ozil and his colleagues play like they did in the recent 2-0 win over Liverpool, life might get a whole lot sweeter for the club's record signing.
