Injury update: Ozil misses Arsenal’s clash with Manchester City

Mesut Ozil has been left out of the Arsenal squad for their game against Manchester City as the German struggles with a hip injury.

The German was still on track to break Thierry Henry’s assist record but got stuck on 18 and seems unlikely to pass 20 with just one game of the season left after the City clash.

Despite missing Ozil, Arsene Wenger named a very attacking XI, including both Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud. There was, however, some good news as Santi Cazorla returned to the bench.

Out since November, his return, sadly, probably comes too late to make a difference to the Gunners.
