It doesn’t just end there for the Gunners however as in this busy festive period of fixtures, Ozil will also miss the upcoming games with Cardiff City and north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

The Germany international has been an important part of the success Arsene Wenger’s side have enjoyed this term and will be sorely missed.
There has been some criticism of the attacking midfielder of late though, with many stating the 25-year-old can’t cope with the large amount of games.
Yet Ozil remains the focal point of the team’s attack and with five goals and 10 assists in all competitions this campaign it’s easy to see why.
The German arrived at the Emirates Stadium on transfer deadline day for a record £42.4m and brought a great amount of positive vibes to the club.
