Both Mesut Özil and Alexis Sánchez scored in Arsenal’s 4-1 defeat of Liverpool the last time the two sides met, and are excited to face Brendan Rodgers’ side again on Monday night.
The two Arsenal stars are key to any hopes Arsenal have of competing this season and took to Twitter to confirm they both trained on Sunday and are excited for the Premier League clash.

The game is a huge one for Arsenal, our first big test of the season coming after we have already lost once. We can’t afford to lose more gourd to Manchester City, even at this early stage of the campaign, and need both Alexis and Mesut to be fully focused on the task at hand.
