Mikel Arteta is convinced Arsenal now have their Champions League rivals looking over their shoulders.
Mesut Ozilâs arrival from Real Madrid made, Arteta says, âa big statementâ to the rest of Europe.
âIt told everyone which direction this club wants to go,â he told the Sunday Express.
âThere was a lot of pressure on Mesut when he joined us, but he has dealt with it fantastically well and now we know we can play against any team.
âIt gives you great confidence when top players come in. Psychologically, it is very different to when you see your best players leaving.
âWe have more confidence. We are winning games that last season we were drawing. We have been able to handle it when we have tough moments. We are able to get the points at the end."
