Özil also posted a picture on Instagram with his knee strapped up.

The 26-year-old playmaker has made nine appearances for Arsenal this season but came under fire from sections of the press following a string of poor performances.

Özil joined Arsenal in September 2013 from Real Madrid for £42.5 million.
