'I want at least...' - Mesut Ozil sets Arsenal challenge via Facebook message

Ozil Arsenal 2

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil says he wants to finish the trophy with a medal.


Mesut Ozil may be out of action but he wants to keep Arsenal's stars on their toes.

The Gunners' record signing revealed in a Facebook message he wants to finish the season with 'at least' one title.

Arsenal play an FA Cup semi-final in three weeks time against Wigan, positioned as firm bookies favourites to win the trophy.

Yet it is not inconceivable Ozil could end the season a double winner. Arsenal are well placed in the Premier League, level on points with Liverpool who many consider the favourites due to their recent hot form.

Arsenal have a crucial clash with Chelsea this weekend, a pivotal fixture in the title race.

If the Gunners can haul Jose Mourinho's side back in Arsene Wenger's 1,000th game then they will stand just one point behind Chelsea, who top the table.

Ozil is out of action until at least the semi-final, and clearly wants his teammates to keep the club in the title race until his hamstring injury clears up.

If they can, then his return along with Aaron Ramsey who he combined with so well early in the season could be just the impetus the club need to ensure the whole squad end the season with winners' medals around their necks.
