Mesut Ozil, Koscielny & Arsenal team-mates prepare for Stoke clash

Arsenal news Santi Cazorla

Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny have both been struggling with injury in recent weeks but trained with their team-mates ahead of this afternoon’s clash with Stoke City.  The Gunners host the Potters at the Emirates stadium, kick-off is at 15:00 (GMT).

The duo were pictured in training this week and are expected to be included in Arsene Wenger’s starting line-up.

Özil missed the Gunners game against Newcastle before the international break. The North London based side secured a 1-0 victory in the World Cup winners absence.

The 26-year-old played in both of Germany’s Euro 2016 qualification games last week.

Stoke have gotten off to a slow start to the season and are yet to record a win after four games. Arsenal sit in sixth place with seven points in four games and know a victory could carry them into the top four.

Probable starting line-ups:

Arsenal: Cech, Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Cazorla, Ramsey, Ozil, Alexis, Walcott

Stoke: Butland, Johnson, Cameron, Muniesa, Pieters, Whelan, Van Ginkel, Shaqiri, Ireland, Arnautovic, Diouf
