Charlie Nicholas wants a big performance from Mesut Ozil in North London derby

Charlie Nicholas wants Arsenal star Mesut Ozil to give a big performance in the North London derby on Sunday.

Charlie Nicholas has written on that he wants a big performance from Arsenal attacking midfielder Mesut Ozil against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.

Ozil is likely to start the North London derby for the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, and former Arsenal forward Nicholas wants a good performance from the Germany international.

“He's really taken his game on to adapt this season but he still needs to produce more big performances in the big games, this Sunday being one of them,” the former Scotland international wrote on

Ozil has been in good form this season and has been one of the best players for Arsenal.

The former Real Madrid star has scored one goal and created 47 chances in 10 Premier League appearances so far this campaign.

The 27-year-old has a pass accuracy of 89% and a shot accuracy of 67%, and has won one header, 12 dribbles and nine tackles.

Ozil will be an important player for Arsenal against Tottenham, and he will have to be on top of his game.

The former Werder Bremen star is a very creative player, and he will be the architect-in-chief for the Gunners in the North London derby.
