Arsenal captain Per Mertesacker sent out a message of support to his teammates ahead of the Manchester United clash on Saturday.

Mertesacker sent out a picture on his twitter account alongside a message of support underlining that he will be behind his teammates.

The Germany international will not feature against United due to injury but he could end up struggling to get back into the first-team once he does return due to the current defensive setup being in good form.

Arsenal could move into first place in the league with a victory over United at Old Trafford.
