Mesut Ozil’s message to Arsenal fans ahead of FA Cup tie against Middlesbrough

Ozil Throw

Premier League giants Arsenal will host Championship outfit Middlesbrough in the fifth round of the FA Cup at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his determination to reach the final of the FA Cup this campaign.

The Gunners ended their nine-year trophy drought last season when they clinched the FA Cup at London's Wembley Stadium.

Germany international Ozil is eying a repeat triumph in the competition, and is ready to give his all for that to happen.

On Friday afternoon, the 26-year-old posted the following message on Twitter.

Arsenal will host Middlesbrough in the fifth round of the FA Cup at the Emirates Stadium in North London on Sunday.

Arsene Wenger’s side will head into the tie as favourites, but they cannot take Middlesbrough lightly.

Aitor Karanka’s team got the better of defending Premier League champions Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium in the last round.

Middlesbrough are also having a good season in the Championship and are on course for automatic promotion to the Premier League.
