Mesut Ozil returns to Arsenal side as CAPTAIN for Cardiff clash
The German has returned to the starting line-up and takes the armband for the visit of the Bluebirds
The German’s last start for the Gunners was in the 1-1 draw at Brighton on Boxing Day, although he did come on as a 64th minute substitute in the 3-1 defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup fourth round last Friday night.
Ozil’s future at the Emirates Stadium remains in question, and there have been suggestions that Inter Milan have been looking to do a deal for the playmaker.
He remains the highest earner at the club, and Emery has often appeared reluctant to use him in games he considers to be more physical.
But he starts against Neil Warnock’s side in Cardiff’s first match since the disappearance of a plane carrying their January signing Emiliano Sala and pilot David Ibbotson.
