Mesut Ozil was not in the Arsenal squad that traveled to Belarus for the first leg of their encounter with Bate Borisov and the gunners were not able to get the win without the German international. Mesut Ozil has however sent the Arsenal fans an encouraging message ahead of the second leg that will be played on Thursday.
Mesut Ozil was not in the Arsenal squad that faced Huddersfield Town last week because he had an illness but he returned to full training on Wednesday but Unai Emery said that he couldn’t take him with them to Belarus because the players he went with could get the job done, and the German international had trained once on Wednesday while others did on Monday and Tuesday.
Mesut Ozil tweeted after the match saying that they would try to overturn the result in Belarus on Thursday at the Emirates Stadium, and most of the replies were Arsenal fans saying that they miss him. Ozil wrote;

“Not the result we wanted, but we still can do it in the 2nd leg and reach the next round! Let’s bounce back at the Emirates especially for our fans.”
Arsenal’s head coach Unai Emery will be on pressure to start Mesut Ozil in their next match because the fans aren’t happy that the coach has left him out many times this season.
