Arsenal fans have been congratulating Mesut Ozil after the latest team news was revealed ahead of the club’s clash away to Olympiacos.
According to Charles Watts, the Gunners will miss Lucas Torreira, who is ill, and the former Germany international, whose wife is about to give birth. The journalist did reveal some good news about their last-32 tie in the Europa League, reporting that Pablo Mari is available and that Matteo Guendouzi has travelled to Greece.
The France youth international finally returns to the matchday squad, having been left out of the side that took on Newcastle United amid reports of a rift with Mikel Arteta and some of the backroom staff (via The Telegraph). Meanwhile, Mari looks set to make his debut for the club after signing from Flamengo on a loan deal for the rest of the season (via BBC).
Fans were left congratulating the German after the news broke as they reacted on Twitter. Here are a few replies:
