Arsene Wenger revelas he doesn't know when Arsenal star Mesut Ozil's fitness leves

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is unsure about Germany international Mesut Ozil's fitness after the former Real Madrid's recent return from injury. Ozil came back as a substitute on Monday night in the Gunners' 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion, after being out for a few weeks with a minor knee injury.

Speaking to BBC Sport, the Gunners manager said about the playmaker: “He just came back from a knee problem, and he hasn’t practiced a lot in the last two weeks. I didn’t know really how much he has lost on the fitness front.”

It is unclear whether Ozil will return to the Emirates outfit starting line-up, since his absence Arsenal have looked in great shape, particularly in their 0-0 draw away from home against defending champions Chelsea.

Arsenal have a busy week ahead as they take on BATE Borisov in the Europa League in Russia on Thursday night. Then on Sunday the Gunners play newly promoted Brighton at The Emirates in a Premier League clash.
