Mesut Ozil’s absence from the German squad to face Scotland this evening will raise worries over the former Real Madrid man’s availability for next weekend’s game against Man City.
Ozil hurt his ankle in the final stages of the Leicester game and required lengthy treatment on the sideline. Had the Gunners not already used their three subs, the chances are he wouldn’t have come back on.
Despite hope in the German national set-up that he might be fit for tonight’s game, his absence will be a concern for Arsene Wenger as his team get ready to face the champions at the Emirates on Saturday.
It’s also possible that he’s just not quite fit enough for today and could be recovered for the weekend, let’s keep fingers crossed for that.
