Arsenal Injury Latest – Best Player Returns and Ozil
Last night, birthday boy Mesut Ozil grabbed his 8th world cup qualification goal for the national side but in the end limped off injured with minutes remaining.
The very sight of seeing him walk off the field in pain was surely horrifying for the Arsenal supporters who fear the worst.
However, Bild newspaper confirmed that Ozil just suffered a bruised knee, which means that he may as well be fit for the game on Saturday against Norwich.
Ozil is one of the main reasons why Gunners sit at the top of the premier league and any injury to him will be considered as a major blow, may it be a minor one.
He is a special player and Wenger should not start him at the weekend so that he gets more time to heal perfectly.
In the meantime, last year’s Arsenal’s best player, their player of the season Santi Cazorla will likely return against Norwich and can directly replace Ozil in the starting lineup.
It was expected that the Spaniard will return to feature out wide in the starting XI with Ozil playing behind the striker.
However, Wenger should not risk Ozil, keep him on the bench, use if badly needed and start Cazorla behind French striker Olivier Giroud.
Also, as per the provided link, Right back Sagna and England winger Theo Walcott are also closing in to return from their respective injuries.
Therefore, Arsenal fans should not really worry much.
