Mesut Ozil savoured the calm before the storm as the Arsenal midfielder trained with his team-mate for the final time ahead of their Community Shield clash against Chelsea on Saturday.

The Gunners are looking to defend their Community Shield crown at Wembley on Sunday after a 3-0 victory over Manchester City sealed their first piece of silverware in the 2014/15 season.

However, Arsenal haven’t beaten Chelsea in their last eight attempts and Arsene Wenger hasn’t guided a Gunner side to victory over Jose Mourinho in 13 games.

But Ozil, who moved to Arsenal from Real Madrid in 2013, took to Instagram to issue something of a rallying cry to his Gunners team-mates ahead of their big game.

Ozil wrote: “The calm before the storm. Last @arsenal training ahead of the big clash on Sunday against Chelsea FC. ⚽⚽ #CommunityShield #YaGunnersYa”

Ozil has scored nine goals in 48 games in the Premier League following his £42.5m move to Arsenal almost two years ago.
