Following our falling out at Liverpool, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed today that Mesut Özil will miss out on tomorrow’s not so crucial return leg versus Bayern Munich.

Özil has only had one training session since returning from illness and will be short on fitness to even make the bench for this Champions League match.

“He should be ok for the weekend (FA Cup vs Lincoln City)” said Arsene Wenger about Mesut Özil.

Arsenal will have to wait a full two weeks to try to straighten out their fight for the top 4 in Premier League following Saturday’s loss at Anfield. Tuesday’s Champions League match at the Emirates will feature Bayern Munich. Munich, who hold a 4 goal differential over Arsenal from the first leg, have averaged 4 goals a game over their last 5 matches. Its time to unleash Sanogo, Arsene.

Following Tuesday, Arsenal will host Lincoln City at the Emirates in the FA Cup Quarter-final on Saturday, where they’ll hope advance on their pursuit of a record 13th FA Cup.
