Arsenal’s record signing Mesut Ozil is adamant that should we repeat the performance we produced in our last Premier League game, then we’ll defeat Aston Villa in the FA Cup final and retain our trophy, he told Arsenal Player.
Ozil will most likely feature against Aston Villa and is looking to secure his second trophy in as many years following our heroics against Hull City last season.
The German wizard was influential in our final league game against West Bromwich Albion and stated that a performance of that magnitude at Wembley will see us lift the trophy once again.

Many similarities remain between our successive finals, but fans around the world will be hoping that the team starts in a more aggressive manner.
“We’ve prepared very well this week and when you look at our performance in the last game [against West Bromwich Albion], if we can replicate that, we’ll win the game,” Ozil said.

“Our opponents will do all they can to win but we’re Arsenal and we’re convinced of our own ability. If we play to our potential, we’ll win the trophy for the second year in a row.”
Top players always rise on the big occasions and Ozil will certainly be desperate to replicate his performance against Reading in his last Wembley outing.
The World Cup winner registered two assists in the semi-final and we will certainly need his creative qualities if we’re to retain the trophy.
Ozil is due a massive game, please let it be today!
