Arsenal star playmaker Mesut Ozil has stated that this week’s clash with Southampton is ‘crucial’ regarding a top-four finish.

The Gunners moved up into fifth place in the Premier League following their 2-0 victory over Manchester United last weekend.

Arsene Wenger’s side take on Southampton on Wednesday as they look to keep the pressure on Liverpool and Man City.

Ozil shared a photo of himself during training and included the following caption, “Another crucial match is awaiting us at St. Mary’s Stadium.”

The 28-year-old has racked up 11 goals and 11 assists for the Gunners so far this season.
