Mesut Ozil returned to training today after illness kept him out of Sunday’s 1-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

The Gunners missed the German’s creativity against the Clarets, and now Arsene Wenger has to decide whether to involve him tomorrow night, or keep him fresh for the weekend when Man Utd come to town.

The Arsenal manager insisted he was focusing completely on the Huddersfield game, saying, “It’s a massive game for me because I watched their game against City, they didn’t deserve to lose.

“This team has come out from hell, you have to play 46 games in the Championship to get out of it, and you need to be ready for a fight.

“With all the teams that come up, you realise that especially in the first season they have that kind of fighting spirit that makes them dangerous for every Premier League side, no matter what kind of names you have on the teamsheet.”

It would still be a surprise if there wasn’t a little bit of rotation, however, and it’s down to Wenger to find the right balance and ensure our excellent home record stays intact this week.

Theo Walcott also returned to training.
