Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil believes the London derby between Chelsea and Arsenal will be ‘something special’, despite Chelsea's 10-point lead at the top of the table.

Chelsea take the short trip to the Emirates stadium this weekend knowing that a win will take them 13 points clear, and within touching reach of a first Premier League crown since Jose Mourinho’s return.

And Arsenal forward Mesut Ozil believes the game will be ’special’, despite Chelsea seemingly unassailable lead at the top of the Premier League.

“We are in a great shape and want to extend our run with a victory on Sunday," he told SID, according to Goal.

"Even if we only have a theoretical chance of winning the Premier League, the meeting of the two teams with the most points of the league is something special,” he added.

Excellent form

Arsenal enter the derby in excellent form, having taken 33 points from 39 available in their last 13 games.

Chelsea are in solid form too, having collected 30 points from their last 13 games, including a 1-0 win over Manchester United last weekend. An Eden Hazard strike saw the Blues extend their run at the top of the table.

Wembley success

Arsenal will also take confidence after a 2-1 Wembley win over Championship outfit Reading last weekend.

An Alexis Sanchez double ensured the Gunners will play their second successive FA Cup final in two years, with only Aston Villa stood in the way of glory.
