Mesut Ozil has warned Manchester United the current Arsenal side are good enough to beat anyone ahead of their clash with the Red Devils at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The Gunners have already beaten Chelsea in impressive style this season, running out 3-0 winners back in September thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Ozil.
Arsene Wenger’s side now travel to Old Trafford searching for a first Premier League win at the ground for over 10 years and three points that could take them to the top of the table, in the early kick-off.
Ozil feels his side have the quality to secure the win but says they need to beat the big teams if they are to win the Premier League title this season.
“[We need to] win every game, get as many points as possible and also be successful against the big teams, like we were against Chelsea,” he told Arsenal Player. “We have the quality to beat any team and that’s what we want to show this season.
“You can see that the big clubs at the top have quality, and that we have to win every game because of how tight it is at the top.

“Our goal has to be to look at ourselves. If we win the games, we’ll be at the top at the end.”
Although they convincingly beat Chelsea, Arsenal’s record against the top sides so far this season is in need of some improvement.
The Gunners were beaten at home by Liverpool on the opening day before drawing with champions Leicester City, while the draw against Tottenham last time out was a disappointment against an out-of-form Spurs side.
