Mesut Ozil made his final preparations for Arsenal’s Sunday game against Chelsea by getting his dog Balboa ready for the top of the table clash.
The German international shared a snap of his dog kitted out in a Gunners replica shirt with the name ‘Balboa’ and the number 11 on the back, the same as his owner.
Ozil and Gunners fans alike will certainly be hoping for a dogged performance in which the north London side can show their title pedigree, igniting an end of season charge for the top of the table.
A win for Chelsea today would see them only three points away from claiming their first Premier League title since 2010 – which could be wrapped up by midweek with a win against Leicester City.
On the other hand, a win for the Gunners would put them seven points behind the league leaders with five games to go – keeping their title dream alive for another week at least.
