The 28-year-old left training on Wednesday while battling the symptoms, however, it doesn’t seem as though Ozil has recovered enough to appear in Saturday’s encounter.

Ozil has found the back of the net nine times this season in Premier League play, while adding eight assist to that total for the Gunners.

The club is hopefully that the German international will be available for next weekend’s Champions League Round of 16 second leg against Bayern Munich, where Arsenal currently trails the Bundesliga leaders, 5-1.
