Pictures: Arsenal star preparing for first start in a while after training with squad
The Gunners are wrapping up their rehearsals for Sunday’s vital Premier League clash with Manchester City.
Arsene Wenger’s men are heading into the affair, 12 points behind fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur with hopes of finishing in the top four looking very slim.
However, apart from December’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester City, Arsenal have actually maintained a decent record in this fixture and managed to win last season’s corresponding clash.
Back in the squad for Sunday’s match is Mesut Ozil whose last appearance was against Lincoln City in the FA Cup quarter-final.
The 28-year-old was in action for Germany during the international break and he could be set for his first start in over a month.
