Mesut Ozil has taken to Instagram to issue an Arsenal rallying cry ahead of the visit of Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday night.

The Gunners need to beat Dinamo and hope Bayern Munich beat Olympiacos to give the north London side a chance to finish second after a run of three defeat in four group-stage games.

Arsenal suffered a 2-1 loss to Dinamo in the Croatian capital on matchday one in September before losing to Olympiacos at The Emirates and a chastening 5-1 defeat by Bayern last time out.

And Ozil, who has been Arsenal’s most-consistent player in recent weeks, posted a short message on his Instagram page ahead of Tuesday night’s European tie.

Matchday! ⚽💪 #UCL #AFCvZAG #COYG #Arsenal #EmiratesStadium
