Arsenal's Mesut Ozil tweets comeback message; looks ahead to important week

Emirates Inside

Mesut Ozil has taken to Twitter following his return to the Arsenal line-up.

Arsenal play-maker Mesut Ozil has been side-lined for the last three months, so it was always going to be a very big deal when he finally returned to action.

That moment came on Sunday, when the German international came on for the Gunners as a second-half substitute in their 3-0 win against Stoke City.

By then the match was won, after a goal from Laurent Koscielny and a brace from Alexis Sanchez put the game to bed shortly after half-time.

Ozil had missed Arsenal's last 13 league games (and the last 18 in all competitions) and while it will take him time to get back to full fitness, Sunday's cameo was a step in the right direction.

The following day, Ozil took to Twitter to write the following message to his fans: "It was a great feeling yesterday. Now one week of full training before the crucial games start."

Those games to which he referred start against Manchester City on Sunday, and it will be interesting to see how Arsene Wenger's side do against the reigning champions.

With Manchester United slipping up on Sunday, the Gunners will be eyeing a return to the top four, but first they must attempt to get the better of Manuel Pellegrini's men.
