Arsenal player’s words come back to haunt him against Manchester United

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.”

  1. What a nob! Arsenal fan here. Thought we were appalling today. Fair play to Utd. was missing for most of the game. Gibbs gave the ball away too much. No hunger. No passion. Man U wanted this a lot more than we did. Didn’t look like we were “having fun” out there at all Mesut …..

  2. Not sure what came back to haunt him. He said he wanted to go there and play for a win. It didn’t happen but it was a tight affair. UTD were the better team on the day and probably in the future, Ozil should let his football do the talking.
