Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has been active on social media ahead of Thursday night’s important fixture in the round of 32 of the Europa League.

The Gunners have put themselves under more pressure following the frustrating 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby on Saturday.

Arsene Wenger’s men went into the clash on the back of an emphatic 5-1 victory over Everton at the Emirates stadium which saw Aaron Ramsey score a hat-trick.

However, the disappointing result at Wembley stadium over the weekend now means a top four finish might be too big an aim for the Gunners.

Therefore, winning the Europa League is likely to be Arsenal’s best route to the Champions League next season.

Mesut Ozil, who received more criticism after the loss to Mauricio Pochettino’s side on Saturday, has attempted to prove to the fans that he is very much aware of what is now at stake.
