Mesut Ozil turns 28 today and a perfect celebration for him would not just be a victory but a goal for him against Swansea City.
Ozil was joined by Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates in the summer of 2014 and they have both forged partnership that is inflicting damage to our opponents.
The Ozil-Alexis axis will again, therefore, represent Arsenal’s best chance of recording a rare home win over the Welsh side.
Sanchez has taken to twitter to send a heartfelt message to Ozil on the occasion of his birthday.
happy birthday to my friend mesut Özil 👏🎉🎉🎉👏🇩🇪🇨🇱 pic.twitter.com/xejBFed9bO

The contract of both players will expire in 2018 and there are reports of talks been stalled over dispute in wages. They are currently our best players and we cannot afford to let them off at the radar.
Some fans have taken to twitter to send their messages and plead with the players to sign contracts with us.
@Alexis_Sanchez both of you need to sign a contract extension
