Cape Town - Arsenal are on top of the English Premiership table - and one of their players already seems to be poking fun at rivals Manchester United.
The Gunners are currently five-points clear at the top of the table, having won eight of their first 10 matches.
On the contrary, their rivals and defending champions, Manchester united, have struggled since the retirement of legendary manager Alex Ferguson.
The Red Devils have won only half their games under new manager David Moyes and currently sit in an unfamiliar eighth spot on the overall log.
And judging by a recent photo taken featuring three Arsenal stars, the Gunners are smirking at the prospect of their great rivals struggling in the post-Fergie era.
Germans Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski were snapped basking in the Gunners' early season success. However, midfielder Ozil decided to take the mickey and pointed to Manchester United's lowly eighth position, instead of Arsenal's one at the summit as can be seen in the picture below...
Arsenal's last league title came way back in the 2003/04 season, and their last trophy of any sort was in 2005 when they beat United in the FA Cup final.
The two teams square off at Old Trafford on Sunday in a game that could go a long way to determining each team's fate this season.
Very cheeky of Ozil. Do you think Arsenal are getting a little ahead of themselves? - Sportingbet SA
