Arsenal vs Leicester City - Ozil set for Gunners return

Arsenal could welcome back Mesut Ozil for the Premier League visit of Leicester on Monday night.

The playmaker missed the 5-1 win at Fulham ahead of the international break due to a back spasm but is now back in full training alongside Danny Welbeck – who withdrew from the England squad after a hamstring issue.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos (ankle) will be assessed after taking a knock with Greece but fellow defenders Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin) are still missing as Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Petr Cech return from leg and hamstring injuries respectively.

Leicester captain Wes Morgan is banned after being sent off before the international break.

The defender serves a one-match suspension following his red card in the 2-1 defeat to Everton.

Ben Chilwell, Harry Maguire and James Maddison have returned from international duty fit but Matty James (Achilles) and Demarai Gray (ankle) are out.
