Arsene Wenger was keen to praise Mesut Ozil following the German playmaker's performance in Arsenal's 2-0 win at home to Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Ozil scored his first goal for the club since his £42.4million deadline-day move from Real Madrid and also turned provider for Olivier Giroud as the Gunners made a flying start against Rafa Benitez's side, scoring both goals in the opening 15 minutes.

"(In the) first half he was absolutely amazing," Wenger told Sky Sports after the win.

"Everything was in there. Collective skill, individual skill, finishing. All that you dream to see in the stand when you come to see football.

"It's good (for Ozil to get his first goal). When you take too long to score it is on your mind but he got rid of that."

Arsenal top Group F with two wins from two games, and Wenger believes the club's next two Champions League fixtures against Borussia Dortmund are crucial to their progress to the knockout stages of the competition.

"We can not start any better," he added.

"The next two will be the deciders.

"We want to come back after the international break and play like that against Dortmund."
