Mesut Ozil has had his moments against Tottenham but he sat out Sunday’s derby with a back problem.
Our No 10 also missed the Europa League trip to Kiev to face Vorskla Poltava, and doubts remain over whether he’ll be involved when we play Manchester United on Wednesday.
“I said on Sunday that he’s had backache since last Tuesday,” said Unai Emery. “He couldn’t play in Kiev or on Sunday.
“At the moment, I don’t know if he can play in Manchester. Today he was working alone, I don’t know if he’s OK for Wednesday.”
