Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil can be a big weapon of mass destruction for the opposition between now and the end of the season according to club legend Emmanuel Petit.

The former Gunners midfielder told Paddy Power that Ozil can be the difference maker for Arsenal when they take on rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the North London Derby on Saturday afternoon.

The 1998 World Cup winner is certain that Ozil has the quality to push Arsenal all the way in the race for top four on the Premier League table at the end of this season.

Mesut Ozil has not been at his best since Arsenal manager Unai Emery was appointed last summer but the German showed signs of his immense talent and quality during the thumping victory over Bournemouth.

Emmanuel Petit praised Ozil’s wonderful outing against the Cherries and also added that the former Real Madrid and Schalke 04 is fresh mentally for the battles ahead for Arsenal.

The Gunners are chasing a top four spot on the Premier League table and they occupy fourth spot ahead of challengers Manchester United and London club Chelsea.

Arsenal have a one-point advantage over the Red Devils with 10 games to go this season.
