Arsenal midfielder Mesut Özil has expressed his belief that Arsenal can secure the Premier League title this season.
The German star has made a big impact since his £42.5m move from Real Madrid in the summer - and his contributions have helped propel Arsenal five points clear at the top of the league.
Following the Gunners' excellent 2-0 home win in the top clash against Liverpool on Saturday, Özil has backed the club to go all the way this year.
When asked by Bild whether Arsenal could win the league, he answered: "Why not?
"Whoever, after ten games, is five points ahead, also has the potential to stand in front at the end of the season.
"To be honest, at Arsenal everything is fun. The coach, the players and life in London - I really feel comfortable."
Ahead of Arsenal's Champions League Group F match against last year's finalists Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park, Özil thinks the Bundesliga outfit is one of this season's favourites.
Dortmund defeated Arsenal 2-1 at the Emirates in the reverse fixture two weeks ago and Özil sees no reason why Juergen Klopp's men should not go all the way.
"Sure, why not?" he added. "A team that wins in London is of course one of the favourites. Dortmund was already a strong team in the past season and my impression is that they are better than ever."
Arsenal face Dortmund on Wednesday night. The Gunners are currently top of Group F, albeit tied on points with the Germans and Rafa Benitez' Napoli.
