Ozil In Contention For Gunners

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil is in contention for Monday’s clash with Leicester after returning to full training.

The Germany international was struggling with back spasms but Gunners boss Unai Emery has confirmed he was involved in full training sessions last week.

Emery has hinted that he will need to rotate with a busy fixture schedule so Ozil may have to accept a place on the bench.

Danny Welbeck also returned to full training late last week after overcoming a minor hamstring issue, which kept him out of the England squad.

Arsenal will hand late fitness checks to Sokratis and Petr Cech after they spent time out recently with ankle and hamstring problems respectively.
