Arsenal injury updates on Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi

Arsenal fans sweating over the fitness of their star players at last have some news – although it’s not particularly good.

The Mirror reports that Mesut Ozil will miss this evening’s game against Bournemouth with a continuation of the illness that ruled him out of Sunday’s 2-0 defeat of Crystal Palace.

Meanwhile both Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Shkodran Mustafi are in contention for a place after featuring on the bench at the weekend.

Playing twice in three days makes changes throughout the team likely, with Aaron Ramsey and Francis Coquelin in with a chance of a start too.

Former Gunner Benik Afobe will be available to face his old club after turning down a linkup with the DR Congo, while Jack Wilshere will not be able to feature against his parent club.

Arsenal are heavy favourite to beat Bournemouth, who despite having home advantage haven’t had much success against the top 6 teams this season.
