Sunderland signing Borini turns up heat on Arsenal's Ozil: It's all about you

Sunderland striker Fabio Borini has turned up the heat on new Arsenal signing Mesut Ozil. Borini, who completed a season-long loan deal from Liverpool on deadline day, feels all eyes will be on Ozil on Saturday.

"The headlines are going to be around Ozil, but that puts a little bit of pressure on them because they've got this new player who they've spent a lot on," Borini told the Evening Chronicle.

"There will obviously be a lot of hype around him. But maybe that will be good because no one will be focusing on us.

"It would be a big boost for me to be involved on Saturday. It would be my debut for the season because I wasn't involved in Liverpool's first three games.

"It's obviously a big game against a top team too, against a side in the Champions League. But for us, it's a chance after the first three games.

"Arsenal have got a very good team technically and we've got to try to be physical against them."
