[Tweet] Arsenal Star Offers Update Following Huge Injury Scare
Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has eased fears that he picked up a knock after being substituted at half-time during Germany’s 2-0 victory over Northern Ireland
Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has eased fears that he picked up a knock after being substituted at half-time during Germany’s 2-0 victory over Northern Ireland last night.
Ozil once again started for the World Champions during their World Cup qualifier in Hannover and played his part as Joachim Low’s side eased in to a 2-0 first half lead thanks to goals from Julian Draxler and Sami Khedira.
The Gunners star failed to appear after the break with Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan replacing him at half-time leading to fears that Ozil had suffered an injury during the opening forty-five minutes.
If the attacker had picked up even a minor knock, he would have been considered as a major doubt for Saturday’s Premier League clash against Swansea City so Arsenal fans were eagerly awaiting an update on Ozil’s situation.
Thankfully the 27-year-old took to Twitter late on Tuesday night to ease fears over his condition as Ozil confirmed that he didn’t suffer any injury problem during the match. He said on Twitter:
“Thanks for taking care because of my substitution but everything is all right guys,”

Germany were in complete control of the match at 2-0 last night and Low admitted after the game that his players were in cruise control so it looks like he decided to take Ozil off and give him a breather – which I’m sure Arsene Wenger will appreciate.
Ozil is now expected to return to London Colney are prepare for Saturday’s clash with Swansea which kicks off a busy period that will also see us take on Ludogorets, Middlesbrough, Reading and Sunderland before the end of the month.
