Mesut Özil appears to be in good spirits ahead of the North London derby clash against Spurs, and seems confident that we will return home with all three points.
The German playmaker took to Twitter to display his bravado, revealing his plans ahead of Saturday’s early kick off.

The World Cup winner arguably chose his words poorly, claiming we would be “robbing three points” from our North London rivals. Most fans will no doubt be hoping we are deserving of a win today, and dominate Spurs from the first to the last whistle.

Özil has been in excellent form since returning from a lengthy spell on the sidelines, and will be hoping to continue that form at White Hart Lane.
Despite his Man of the Match performance against Aston Villa however, Arsene Wenger may opt for someone more defensive for a game as tough as this.
If he does start on the left today, he will have to be diligent in his defensive duties. We certainly have the quality to dispatch Mauricio Pochettino’s side, but can’t afford to let silly mistakes creep into our game.
