Mesut Ozil sends a birthday message to Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez
Mesut Ozil gets full marks for remembering to send a message to birthday boy Alexis Sanchez ahead of Arsenal’s clash against Manchester City at The Emirates on Monday night.
The Chile international is unlikely to feature in the top-of-the-table clash in north London after he injured his hamstring during a 1-1 draw with Norwich City at Carrow Road last month.
Although Sanchez is not expected to play any part in the game against third-placed City, the £35m signing is on the road to recovery after the forward returned to England from Chile earlier in December.
And Arsenal midfielder Ozil wished Sanchez a very happy 27th birthday as the club’s record signing geared up for the visit of Manuel Pellegrini’s side tomorrow night.
Ozil wrote on his Instagram page: “Happy birthday, Alexis! ☺🎉🎈#AFC #Sanchez #YaGunnersYa”
The World Cup winner has scored two goals and has made 13 assists in 15 Premier League appearances for Arsene Wenger’s side this season.
The north London outfit are five points behind surprise Premier League leaders Leicester City.
