London: Per MertesackerArsenal defender Per Mertesacker has warned his side's Premier League title rivals the best is still to come from star midfielder Mesut Ozil.

Arsene Wenger's side head to Cardiff on Saturday looking to extend their lead at the top of the table before the rest of the title challengers play on Sunday.

A win would move the Gunners seven points clear of second placed Liverpool, who face Hull 24 hours later, and Mertesacker is confident they will do just that if Ozil is at his best in Arsenal's first league fixture at Cardiff since 1961.
