Mesut Ozil took to social media on Friday night to share a selfie as Arsenal prepared for Saturday’s Premier League showdown with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The Gunners head into the clash looking to return to winning ways after they slumped to a 2-1 loss to Dinamo Zagreb in their Champions League opener on Wednesday night.

Ozil shared the photo above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “〽️”

Arsenal are third in the Premier League table and five points behind early pace-setters Manchester City heading into the game against the Blues.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have been in stuttering form in the top flight this season. Jose Mourinho’s men have managed to take just four points from their opening five Premier League games to leave them six points behind Arsenal heading into the game.

The Blues did, however, return to winning ways with a convincing 4-0 win over Maccabi Tel-Aviv in their Champions League opener in midweek.
