Arsenal midfielder has boosted manager Unai Emery’s team with his return from injury after he was seen training on Tuesday.
Ozil had suffered a back pain that ruled him out of the Arsenal’s 5-1 win against Fulham on Sunday which created fears he would be away for a while.
Having earlier ruled himself out of the Germany national team call, the 29-year-old will be returning fresh for the Spanish manager as he is not involved in the international games. Ozil has had enough rest.
However, the German has returned to face Leicester City after the break as he was seen training alongside the likes of Hector Bellerin, Alexandre Lacazette and others who were not handed a call-up from their countries.
Although, the former Real Madrid player will have to fight Henrikh and Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi for a starting role knowing that the Spanish manager will only line up players who have impressed.
Super Eagles star Iwobi has been in great form in the last couple of games with his goal-bound assists and will look difficult to be left to the bench knowing his impact in the past few weeks.
However, the Arsenal team are in great form as they have seen 9 successive wins in a row.
