Mesut Ozil was drawing inspiration from a talented fan’s artwork ahead of Arsenal’s clash against Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday night.

The Gunners are looking to cement their two-point lead at the top of the Premier League table after hoisting themselves above Leicester City in recent weeks.

Arsenal are unbeaten in their last four games against the Merseyside outfit since a 5-1 humiliation at Anfield in the Premier League in February 2014.

Ozil has been in stunning form for the north London side over the past couple of months, scoring three goals and making six assists in his last 10 games in all competitions.

The Germany international posted the above photo and wrote a message on his Instagram page ahead of Wednesday night’s clash: “Matchday!!! 💪⚽🔥🔥#LFCvAFC #BeTheDifference #YaGunnersYa #COYG #Anfield #Arsenal Thanks to @footballinho for the nice edit 😉”

Ozil has scored three goals and has made a staggering 16 assists in 19 Premier League games so far this season for the Gunners.
