Mesut Ozil has been left out of Arsenal's match-day squad for the Saturday-evening clash with West Ham, despite having no worries about the injury.
The midfielder trained the whole week with the club and seems to have recovered completely from the knee injury, making him stay out of the last three matches.
Unai Emery chose to call the same starting XI that defeated Fulham in their last Premier League outing despite the fact that Ozil was available.
