Mesut Oezil coming to the Emirates Stadium greeted joyfully by the fans of the Gunners . The arrival of players from Germany that was marked by a new nickname from the Gooners , the ” Godzilla ” , which refers to the combination of Olivier Giroud , Oezil , and Santi Cazorla .
Oezil suspected to be directly played from the first minute when Arsenal face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday ( 14/09/2013 ) . Understandably , Arsenal is currently being buffeted by crisis after players Tomas Rosicky , Abou Diaby , Mikel Arteta , Oxlade – Chamberlain , and Lukas Podolski had to pull over due to injury .
By playing Oezil , manager Arsene Wenger is likely to shift to the left side of Santi Cazorla , who usually occupied Podolski or Oxlade – Chamberlain . While Theo Walcott will play on the right wing to complement the three attacking midfielders that will sustain Giroud as the spearhead .
The match is scheduled to broadcast live BEIN SPORT 1 at 20:55 pm . Arsenal win odds pretty high if you look at the history of the two teams meeting . Moreover , The Black Cats started the season poorly because have not won three games early in the 2013-14 Premier League .
Instead , the Arsenal players currently blanketed with high confidence . Oezil arrival and victory in the last four games , including when they beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 last week , of course, would make the desire Giroud and his friends continue the positive trend is very large .
” Joining Oezil in the club will promote the spirit of all the players . ‘s Clearly an affirmation , we are willing to move . We had a good start to the season and we have got . However , will now look more fantastic ( with Ozil ) , ” said Walcott .
Confidence from the opposite camp would have to watch out completely by the Sunderland manager , Paolo Di Canio . Although also has the determination to win the first season , the Black Cats defense should not be complacent in the slightest anticipation of Arsenal attacks if it does not want to fall prey to the first Godzilla .
