Mesut Ozil has not been included in Arsenal’s squad for their game against Stoke at the Britannia on Sunday.

The German missed training on Saturday as he has a ‘slight’ foot injury which is not expected to keep him out too long.

To us, it sounds as if he might have picked up a little bit of bruising on his foot which shouldn’t rule him out for more than a few days. This is, of course, speculation.

Arsenal fans will certainly be hoping he will be back for Chelsea next weekend.

Arsenal’s win percentage with Ozil is 61%. Without him it is 62%.
