Ozil ready for Arsenal debut

6:49 pm on 13 September 2013

Arsenal's new record signing, the German midfielder Mesut Ozil, is likely to make his English Premier League debut away to Sunderland this weekend.

After losing their opening game to Aston Villa, Arsenal have won their last two, and now have the fillip of their first real big-money buy in over a decade, against a team which is second-bottom in the Premier League.

Sunderland have taken just a point from their opening three games.

The champions Manchester United, who have lost to Liverpool and drawn with Chelsea, host newly-promoted Crystal Palace.
