Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller has stated that his side must keep an eye on Arsenal’s playmaker Mesut Özil when the two sides come face to face tonight in the UEFA Champions League.
The Germany international stated that Özil’s passing ability is a threat to their defence.
“Mesut can hurt anyone, especially in London, where I see Arsenal as being a tick stronger than when they play away,” Muller told Arsenal FC.
“We need to prevent Mesut from playing those dangerous passes in the final third.”
Munich have been long term admirers of Özil according to the Daily Mail. The 27-year-old opted to move to Real Madrid back in 2010 and evaded Munich’s clutches. The daily newspaper states that Munich have prided themselves on signing the best German players available but have been unable to land Özil.
Özil missed a penalty for Arsenal two seasons ago when they took on Munich and is expected to start once again tonight.
The Gunners have now won back-to-back games in the league and take on Bayern Munich tonight in the Champions League.
