Mesut Ozil is expected to start for Arsenal when they take on Sunderland in the Premier League later today. Kick-off is at 14:05 (GMT).

The Germany international has been in impressive form this season and may feel unlucky not to be included in the PFA Team of the Year which was announced earlier this week.

Ozil is once again set to start in his favoured number ten role behind the lone striker Olivier Giroud.

The Gunners need a win in order to move back into top three. Arsenal have 63 points in 34 games and are a point behind Manchester City.
