Mesut Ozil to play no part in FA Cup final with Arsenal star in Turkey

Confirmation that Mesut Ozil will not even be part of the Arsenal matchday squad to take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final has been forthcoming online this evening.

Arsenal vs Chelsea

Mikel Arteta’s men are of course set to return to action in a little under 24 hours’ time.

The Gunners’ final outing of the season will see them face off with London rivals Chelsea at Wembley, for a shot at cup glory.

Arsenal booked their spot in Saturday’s showpiece courtesy of a hugely impressive victory over Manchester City two weeks ago.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang unsurprisingly proved the star of the show, notching a brace either side of half-time to oust Pep Guardiola’s holders from the competition.

Victory for the Gunners versus Chelsea, meanwhile, would no doubt go a long way towards easing the pain of another underwhelming campaign for all associated with the club, with Arsenal set for another year without Champions League football in 2020/21 on the back of an 8th-placed Premier League finish.

Ozil absent

As outlined above, though, one player who will play no part in the attempts of the north Londoners to clinch their latest FA Cup crown is Mesut Ozil.

German playmaker Ozil has of course been left out in the cold by Mikel Arteta since football’s return last month, as the 31-year-old’s Emirates stint continues to sour.

And confirmation has this evening been forthcoming that not only will Ozil not be present at Wembley tomorrow evening, but the former Real Madrid man in fact won’t even be in the country.

Instead, he will be in Turkey, after being granted permission to depart England earlier this week:
