Arsenal receive key injury boost for Leicester City game

Ozil back in full Arsenal training

Arsenal have received an injury boost for next weekend's Premier League clash against Leicester City with Mesut Ozil returning to full training after recovering from a back problem.

The German failed to make the matchday squad for the 5-1 mauling of Fulham last weekend and Unai Emery thereafter confirmed that the midfielder had been struggling with back spasms.

However, he has now returned to full-contact training with his Gunners teammates not on international duty and is expected to be available for the next league encounter against the Foxes.

Ozil has improved on his scoring potential under the tutelage of Emery tghis campaign and he has already contributed three goals from eight appearances for the Gunners in all competitions.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are currently occupying the fourth position in the league standings ahead of cross-town rivals Tottenham Hotspur after going through a nine-match winning streak across all competitions - which includes six straight victories in the top-flight.
