Mesut Ozil has taken to Instagram to reassure Arsenal supporters that Arsene Wenger’s players are ready for an important week in their season.

The north London side were emphatic 5-0 winners against EFL Cup finalists Southampton in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday evening thanks to Danny Welbeck’s double and Theo Walcott’s hat-trick.

Arsenal will host London rivals Watford in the Premier League on Tuesday night as the Gunners hope Liverpool can do them a favour and beat the leaders Chelsea at Anfield.

Wenger’s side will have the chance to gain ground on the west London side when Arsenal travel to the pacesetters in the Premier League in Saturday’s early kick-off.

And Ozil has taken to Instagram to post the above photo on his page and write the following caption:

“Preparing for this important @PremierLeague week! ⚽💥 #2games #AFCvWFC #CFCvAFC #COYG #NeverFollow @arsenal”

The Gunners haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04.
