This game is also the home debut for Arsenal’s big signee Mesut Özil. Arsenal and manager Arsene Wenger are hoping to take a lead in the Premier League Title race and hold on to it.
“I believe we have a chance (to challenge for the title) and what is most important is that my full energy is to make sure we grab that chance,” Wenger said, via ESPN FC.
“It is too early to say who will be in the fight, who will not be in the fight. You are a bit cautious because these days you are very quickly in a crisis – one bad result and everyone questions your potential to be in there, so let’s be consistent.”
