Ahead of Manchester United’s victory over Arsenal, Mesut Ozil gave a very cocky interview in which he claimed that his side would definitely win.
As it turned out, Ozil struggled to make an impression on the game and Arsenal once again found themselves on the losing side at Old Trafford, with their former captain, Robin van Persie, scoring the only goal of the game.
“We don’t feel any pressure at all,” he said. “We are going to Old Trafford to have fun – and that is why we are going to win. We know the quality we have and we want to be successful playing our own way. The plan is not to settle for a draw. If we are going to achieve the target of our coach, then we go to win. Of course, it’s going to be difficult. United are a high-quality team. But I’m sure they also respect us because we can beat anyone, home or away.”
