Mesut Ozil is expected to be available for Arsenal vs Swansea – Arsene Wenger

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger insistsMesut Ozil will be available for the game against Swansea City and does not need to be rested for the fixture.

The 27-year-old, who missed the first game of the league season after returning later than most from Euro 2016, jetted off with Germany last week for their World Cup qualifiers.

Ozil played the full 90 minutes against Czech Republic on Saturday as Joachim Low’s side won 3-0, before he started once again in the following game against Northern Ireland on Tuesday night.

However, with the scores at 2-0, Low afforded the Arsenal star a rest at half time and the attacking midfielder has since returned to Colney.

When asked whether Ozil was good to go for the visit of Swansea City on Saturday, Wenger was confident the former Real Madrid man was fully fit and not suffering from any fatigue.
