Ozil could start for first time in seven weeks as Arsenal ace is declared fit to face City

Date Posted,March 29, 2017

Mesut Ozil has been passed fit to take on Manchester City on Sunday – and could make his first start since the middle of February.

Arsenal midfielder Ozil has suffered foot, ankle and illnesses to force him out the starting XI.

The German’s last start came in the first leg of the Gunners’ humiliating 10-2 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.

His last Premier League appearance from the start coincided with the north London outfit’s last league win – against relegation threatened Hull on 11 February.

Ozil played 20 minutes for Germany’s 4-1 thrashing of Azerbaijan on Sunday and Wenger revealed: “He is in contention to start again.

“He played 20 minutes against Azerbaijan. He has worked very hard this week.”

Ozil is preparing to go into the final season of his current contract at the Emirates, along with megastar Alexis Sanchez.
