The German international scored his first goal for the club thanks to an assist from Cazorla on the half-hour mark at Anfield, and he duly returned the favour in the second period to give the Gunners their first win of the season.
The 27-year-old believes that his style of play is perfectly suited to Arsene Wenger's philosophy, and suggests that his understanding with Cazorla will only improve with time.

“We play [well] together and you could see it here - he passed for me for the first goal, I passed to him for the second goal.
“But we are only three matches in. We have 35 matches more so we must keep going.”
The man from Koln explained that he has had to adjust his position slightly since arriving at the Emirates this summer, but insists that he is relishing the challenge.
“I play on the left side but you see at Arsenal it is different from the [German] national team,” he continued.
“At Arsenal, it’s a three-point position. I not only play on the line but I can go in the middle and play with Santi and Abou Diaby and Mikel Arteta.
“This is my style of football. I like this but it’s not only about one match - I want to play more of these matches.”
