Mesut Ozil has given Arsenal a huge boost by returning to training after missing the Gunners 5-1 win against Fulham on Sunday.

The German was ruled out of the clubs win at Craven Cottage with a back spasm and watched on from home as Unai Emerys side won their ninth game in a row in all competitions.

The 29-year-old has ruled himself out of contention for Germany and therefore has a free international break.

Ozil was able to train alongside the likes of Hector Bellerin and Alexandre Lacazette on Tuesday and showed no signs of any back problems.

The Gunners face Leicester City at the Emirates after the international break and Ozil has another ten days to prepare for the visit of the Foxes.

Ozil will have to battle Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi for a starting spot against Leicester.

The pair were two of Arsenals best players in the mauling of Fulham and Ozil could start the game on the bench.
