Mesut Ozil has confirmed that he has returned to Arsenal after a bout of ‘flu.
Speaking at his press conference on Thursday morning, Arsene Wenger confirmed that the German was expected back at London Colney today [Thursday].
The Arsenal manager wasn’t sure if it had been ‘flu or a throat infection that sent Mesut to bed for a fortnight, but he’s back at the club which is great news.
He is not expected to play any part against Preston at the weekend:
