Arsenal star Ozil allays injury fears

Arsenal’s Mesut Ozul has allayed fears that he could be injured after he was substituted at half-time during his country’s World Cup qualifier against Northern Ireland.

The 27-year-old German not appearing for the second half led to speculation that he could be a doubt for the Gunners’ game against Swansea on Saturday.

But Ozul has since suggested on Twitter that he is not carrying an injury.

Germany’s 2-0 win in Hanover left them top of Group C after three matches and firmly on course for qualification.

Ozul being available this weekend would be a boost for Arsenal, who are third in the Premier League table after their opening seven matches of the season.

And their Champions League campaign will begin next week with a match against Bulgarian side Ludogorets Razgrad.

Francis Coquelin has been recovering from a knee problem and could return to the Gunners squad for the Swansea game.

Aaron Ramsey, meanwhile, has resumed full training following a hamstring problem.

However, Ramsey, who has been out since the opening day of the season, is not expected to be rushed back.
