Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has been causing quite a stir on Twitter after a picture emerged of him appearing to mock Manchester United's poor Premier League position.

The German playmaker has already won the hearts of Gunners fans after a series of scintillating performances following his £42.5million move to north London.

And, it looks as though the former Real Madrid star will be the toast of the Arsenal terraces again at the weekend, after seemingly poking fun at the reigning champions.

Standing alongside fellow Germans Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski - who point out the fact that Arsenal are five points clear at the top of the table, with 25 points from their opening 10 games - Ozil chooses to focus his attention on the Red Devils, currently eight points adrift, in a lowly eighth place.

The image of Ozil - which might well have been photoshopped - is likely to add even more needle ahead of this weekend's crucial Premier League encounter, which sees Arsene Wenger's side travel to Old Trafford to face David Moyes's Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
