Mikel Arteta is convinced the arrival of Mesut Ozil is a game-changer for Arsenal. The former Real Madrid star is set to make his debut against Sunderland this weekend.

Arteta told talkSPORT: "With players like him you will scare the opposition and when the opposition are scared of you have a better chance of winning the game.

"I'm delighted that we've got Mesut Ozil. He is the kind of player that can make a difference in any minute of a game. He's someone who you want to play next to.

"For me he is a top draw player. I think after Cristiano Ronaldo he was the best player at Real Madrid.

"I think Arsenal fans are really going to enjoy him."
