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 opted to name the same starting XI which beat Fulham in their last Premier League
outing despite Ozil being available.
Ozil posted a message on his social media accounts saying he had completed a full week of training on Friday.
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.
MESUT OZIL'S STATS FOR SEASON
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.
The Spaniard cited 'tactical reasons' when he dropped him for their defeat at Southampton last month.
Full week of team training done ?????? #M1Ö
