We are now at the end of the build up to the first Arsenal game of the new Premier League season, which I am sure you are all aware takes place tonight at the Emirates stadium with the EPL champions of two seasons ago, Leicester City, the side hoping to stop Arsene Wenger and the Gunners taking all three points and getting off to the good start we all feel they need.
In that build up just a week or so ago we found out that our German international playmaker Mesut Ozil was not fully fir and was training alone and we know he was not ready because his name was not even in the matchday squad for the Community Shield clash with Chelsea.
However, I think that may have been more precautionary on the part of the boss, because this week in an interview on the Arsenal website Wenger said he just had a decision to make on players like Ozil, Ramsey and Mertesacker who missed last weekend’s game but have been involved during pre-season.
The on Arsenal.com today we see pictures of the lads in the final traini9ng session before taking on the Foxes and Ozil is right there front and centre. That surely means that the German is fit enough to play some part at least and his importance to our attack as he pulls the strings for the likes of Lacazette means that Wenger is going to use him if he can.
How big a boost will that give the Gunners in our opening EPL game?
