The Gunners travel to Stamford Bridge today following their disappointing midweek UEFA Champions League display against Dinamo Zagreb.
Özil posted a selfie in his car with a serious look on his face.
The Gunners beat Chelsea the last time the two sides met in the Community Shield at the start of the season. Özil started for Arsenal in that game and is expected to be in the starting XI today.
Chelsea had no such problems as they swept Maccabi aside but it has been a different story in the league as the Blues have only managed to pick up four points from five games and are currently in 17th place.
Jose Mourinho’s side will be without the injured Willian while Pedro and Radamel Falcao are also doubts.
