Mesut Ozil has told Arsenal fans and players to ‘stand together as one’ as he prepares to make his comeback in tomorrow night’s Carabao Cup clash against Liverpool.

The 31-year-old has made just two appearances this season and hasn’t featured in any of Unai Emery’s last six mathday squads.

Ozil last featured for Arsenal in the previous round of the Carabao Cup – a 5-0 win over Nottingham Forest on September 24 – but his exile has coincided with a disastrous run of results, compounded by Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

The loss of two points was, however, overshadowed by the actions of Granit Xhaka who was booed off by his own fans, prompting the club captain to tell his own fans to ‘f*** off’ before he stormed down the tunnel.

Taking to Instagram, Ozil wrote: ‘Big game ahead. No matter what – the only way is standing together as one.’
