Ozil: Arsenal vs Chelsea will be something special

The Germany midfielder believes the clash between the country's top two sides stands out despite the Blues' seemingly unassailable lead at the top of the Premier League table
Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is hoping Sunday's clash with Chelsea will be "something special" despite the one-sided nature of this season's Premier League title race.

The Blues are 10 points clear of Arsene Wenger's side at the top of the division with six games left to play.

But Ozil maintains that there is a particular glamour to any fixture between the country's top two sides even if Arsenal's chances of winning the title are now only "theoretical".

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

"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."

Arsenal enter the clash at the Emirates Stadium on an eight-game winning run and have been the Premier League's form team in 2015, taking 33 points from 13 matches.

Chelsea have collected 30 points in that period, however, and have not suffered defeat in the league since their last visit to north London - a 5-3 loss to Tottenham on January 1.
