Arsenal injury update: Ozil available and three stars being ‘assessed’ before Bournemouth

According to Arsenal’s official website, Mesut Ozil is available for selection for the Gunners’ clash against Bournemouth after dealing with a knock to his foot.

Arsenal caretaker boss Freddie Ljungberg slammed the playmaker for his angry reaction after being subbed off against Manchester City.

Ljungberg claimed that he wouldn’t have picked Ozil for the clash with Everton even if he was fit, as a result of his actions.

There’s a potential boost for the Gunners ahead of Mikel Arteta’s first game in charge with the club’s injury update stating that Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Gabriel Martinelli are all being ‘assessed’.

Can Mikel Arteta turn Arsenal’s fortunes around?

This will certainly be a welcome boost for the Gunners, who will be without Calum Chambers (suspension), Kieran Tierney (shoulder injury) and Sead Kolasinac (ankle injury).

Arsenal’s report adds that versatile midfielder Dani Ceballos has returned to training this week, although there’s no other update on the Real Madrid loanee’s return to action.

It’s absolutely essential that we manage to get as many players back in action over the hectic Christmas and new year period, with games coming thick and fast we’ll need all hands on the deck to give us a chance of finishing the year on a high.

  1. Based on Arteta’s speech about the clean slate for all players, I believe he would use the old 4-2-3-1 with available senior players as starters:

    ………….. Leno
    Niles . Sokratis . Luiz . Saka
    ……. Torreira … Xhaka
    Pepe ………. Ozil …… Aubameyang
    ………….. Lacazette

  2. Arteta on Freddie dropping Ozil:

    “It’s a question for Freddie. I just wanted him to pick the best possible lineup for the game.”

    “You’re not going to be judged on what you done in the past, positive or negative.”

    A fresh start for everyone.

    Arteta = Moyes + wenger + Pep + Arteta

  3. With his comments. I see him as a ruthless Wenger

    I am supporting this guy no matter what. I hope the Arsenal fan base will give him all the support he needs

  4. I to am going to support Arteta, I never though things were wengers fault and I think that’s now exposed. I never thought emery was an upgrade on wenger and I don’t think Arteta is. However Arteta loves this club and there’s no doubt he’s going to give it 110%, I’m more than willing to give him a good shot!

  5. Normally I would be making excuses for us because of a long injury list , but if I`m correct, Bournemouth have a longer injury list than us and remarkably they still managed to win at Chavs!
