GIFs: Mesut Ozil Breaks Drought and All Goals from Arsenal-Everton in FA Cup

Arsenal's Mesut Ozil finally ended his goal drought on Saturday, scoring the opening goal in the FA Cup quarter-final tie with Everton.

It was Ozil's first goal in exactly three months—the previous one having been in the two squads' last meeting on 8 December.

The strike came in seven minutes as Arsenal capitalised on a counter-attack. Santi Cazorla played the crucial final ball toward Ozil, and the German international coolly finished. Here's the GIF:

Arsenal's lead did not last long, however, as a moment of brilliance from Ross Barkley helped Everton level the score. The 20-year-old midfielder ran the length of the pitch before picking out an inch-perfect pass for Kevin Mirallas. Mirallas' touch missed the mark, but thankfully for the Toffees Romelu Lukaku was there to clean up in front of an open net:

The Gunners reclaimed the lead midway through the second half from the penalty spot. Gareth Barry was deemed to have committed a foul on this challenge:

Mikel Arteta converted his penalty not once, but twice, after Giroud's encroachment on the first attempt forced a retake.

Substitute Olivier Giroud then wrapped up Arsenal's victory with a late double, scoring twice within a three-minute window.
