Arsenal v Aston Villa – Confirmed line ups – Mesut Ozil start

Mesut Ozil

Arsenal take on Aston Villa today in the final game of their Premier League season.

The Germany international Mesut Ozil has been included in the starting line-up in his favoured number ten role after recovering from a hip injury which kept him out of last weekends encounter.

The Gunners can still overtake their north London rivals Tottenham in second place if Spurs suffer a defeat at the hands of Swansea City.

Ozil has enjoyed an impressive season for the Gunners this season so far. The 27-year-old has recorded 18 assists and with two games to go still has a chance of equalling the Premier League record of 20 set by Thierry Henry.
