Mesut Ozil has been left out of Arsenal’s match-day squad for Saturday’s clash with West Ham despite having no injury concerns. 

The midfielder trained with the club all week and appears to have made a full recovery from the knee injury which kept him out of their last three matches.  

Unai Emery, who is rumoured to have a fractious relationship with the Arsenal star, opted to name the same starting XI which beat Fulham in their last Premier League outing despite Ozil being available.

The 30-year-old has not played since Boxing Day and has failed to establish a regular starting berth this season under new boss Emery. 

Despite this, his agent came out this month and insisted Ozil is happy at the club amid speculation over his long-term future.

Emery has given Ozil reassurances over his role at the club but still has reservations over the midfielder’s work-rate levels and this latest omission is likely to lead to more speculation.  

Ozil had been dropped a number of times over the Christmas period and it is not yet clear where he will fit into the Arsenal boss’ plans with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette both starting up front together in recent games.
