Mesut Ozil has taken to Twitter to confirm that he is both injured and expected to be fit for the World Cup as the S*n try to create a split in the Arsenal camp.

Ozil was missing from Arsenal’s final game of the season at the Emirates on Sunday and a number of fans online were less than impressed.

For many, it appears as if the German is picking and choosing the games he plays in, a narrative that the S*n have picked up and ran away with:

In order to allay fears that he will miss the World Cup, Ozil took to Twitter to explain his injury.

There is absolutely no indication that there is any truth at all in the S*n’s backpage headline.

As you can see from the image that Mesut posted, he is sitting in between Mo Elneny and Santi Cazorla while they all enjoy a laugh about something during  Sunday’s events.
