London: Arsene Wenger believes his club record swoop for Mesut Ozil has revitalised Arsenal after the Germany midfielder inspired a 2-0 win over Napoli with his first goal for the Gunners.

Wenger splashed out £42.5 million ($68.9million) to lure Ozil from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day and the midfielder's arrival in north London has coincided with a remarkable revival in Arsenal's fortunes.

An opening day defeat against Aston Villa looked set to spark unrest among unhappy Gunners fans, but Wenger has managed to get Arsenal back on track in emphatic fashion and he gives much of the credit to Ozil.
