Bad News! Wenger delivers worrying update on Mesut Ozil

Mesut Ozil has been missing in action for Arsenal after boxing day when he played in the 1-0 win over West Brom.He has since been sidelined with a mystery illness, missing the 2-0 win over Crystal Palace and 3-3 draw with Bournemouth.

And Arsene Wenger has confirmed he is unlikely to feature against Preston in the Third Round of the FA Cup on Saturday (5.30pm).

“Ozil is coming in today and will be assessed by the doctor,” Wenger said.“He has been out for two weeks in bed and I can’t imagine he’ll be involved.”

In his absence, Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey have played in the no.10 position but his presence and importance for Arsenal cannot be over emphasiesed.
