Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka ready to challenge Alexandre Lacazette

EPL: Michael Owen predicts Sheffield Utd vs Arsenal, Man Utd vs Liverpool, Chelsea vs Newcastle

Ozil - It's always my fault if we don't do well

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette faces a fitness test on the ankle problem that has ruled him out since the start of September.

Ozil has been sidelined by Unai Emery this season and the Arsenal manager has found support amongst some of the Arsenal fan base who have not been enamoured by the German's performances over the last few years. Find out by following our live matchcast. "This should not be about me or the coach, only the club".

The World Cup victor has gone from being a key player to being completely forgotten in London under Unai Emery.

In a drawn out saga to rival Brexit, Ozil's career in north London went from a new club record £350,000-a-week deal one minute, to looking dead in the water the next.

He sees no reason why the Gunners can not secure a lofty standing in 2019-20, telling the Premier League's official website after being named Player of the Month for September: "I'm sure we will achieve the top four". Meanwhile, it remains unclear whether Mesut Ozil will return to the fray after being left out of the previous three matchday squads by Emery.

Arsenal appear to be improving at both ends of the pitch and I just have a feeling they will edge this one. Other players are the same. "We can use them if we, like a team, can feel strong in our mentality and being competitive and consistent each match". I'm not the only player in the team and, don't forget, some of our opponents are simply better than us. Jurgen Klopp's side have ridden their luck in recent weeks, but I expect them to have too much pace and aggression for this United side, although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hopeful that he can call on the services of at least a couple of his key players returning from injury or illness.

"I want to win titles with Arsenal".

"I have a contract until the summer of 2021 and I will be staying until then", @ Ozil said.

"I am happy how he is improving, training every day".

At right-back, Calum Chambers should start ahead of Hector Bellerin after his tremendous display against Bournemouth, where he made two match-saving interceptions.

'You can go through hard times like this, but that is no reason to run away and I'm not going to, ' he said.
