Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere were in good form as the Arsenal duo prepared for Thursday night’s clash against Crvena Zvezda.

The Gunners have made a brilliant start to their Europa League campaign following three successive victories in Europe’s second tier competition.

France striker Olivier Giroud scored a late winner to secure a 1-0 win against the Serbian club, who are also known as Red Star Belgrade.

Arsenal missed out on a spot in the Champions League last season following a fifth-place finish behind Liverpool in the 2017-18 season.

However, the Gunners can use the Europa League as a route back into the Champions League just as Manchester United did last season.

Ozil is still waiting to make his first appearance in the competition but Wilshere has started two of their three Europa League games.

And the German playmaker posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:

“Mood: 😊🔝 #COYG #training #fun @jackwilshere @Arsenal”

Arsenal are in fifth place in the Premier League table but nine points adrift of current leaders Manchester City.

The Gunners will make the trip to Manchester City in their next top-flight game at The Etihad.

The north London side signed Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac in the summer.
