Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil were both in training ahead of Thursday’s Europa League trip to Serbia.
Alexis and Ozil were both in training ahead of the Gunners trip to face Red Star Belgrade on Thursday. This suggests that one or both will feature against the Serbian team.

Ozil has been recovering from an inflamed knee recently but played 21 minutes against Watford on Saturday.
Unfortunately for the playmaker, he didn’t make the best impression after missing what should have been a straight-forward goal while the Gunners were 1-0 ahead.
Alexis missed the trip to Vicarage Road with ‘tight quadriceps’ after Chile failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia during the interlull.
The forward probably just needed a mental break and bit of a rest.
Both Ozil and Alexis have been heavily linked with January moves seeing as their contracts have run down to their final months. Therefore, the pair are probably being watched like hawks in training since people love to pretend they know about body language.
Alexis’ only goal so far this term has come in the Europa League match against FC Cologne so perhaps he’ll be able to improve his tally if he gets the nod on Thursday.
Ozil has failed to score or provide an assist so far.
