Mesut Özil – ‘The title holder will be back in the ring tomorrow’ [divider]
Mesut Özil expects Brighton to put up a fight in the FA Cup fourth round tie tomorrow but believes title holders Arsenal will be able to deliver a knockout blow.
Özil shared an image alongside Alexis Sanchez on his official Instagram account with the caption: “The title holder will be back in the ring tomorrow!We’re expecting our opponent to step on our feet – Alexis has been the perfect example today #FACup #BHAvAFC #COYG”
The 26-year-old is expected to start for the first time since damaging his knee ligaments during a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea in October.
Özil played 17 minutes against Stoke City two weeks ago but failed to make an appearance against Manchester City last week due to lacking match fitness.
The record Arsenal signing has a huge social media following.
The World Cup winner has 8.8 million Twitter followers, 2.1 million Instagram followers and almost 26 million Facebook likes making him the most followed Arsenal player on social media networks.
The record £42.5 million Arsenal signing has made two assists and scored one goal in ten appearances for the North-London based club this season.
