There were a number of angry Arsenal fans and Fantasy Premier League managers on Sunday, when it was announced that Mesut Ozil was not part of the Gunners squad for the tricky trip to Stoke.

Arsenal had kept it pretty quiet and without Alexis Sanchez, the Gunners were without their two big superstars for the match at The Britannia.

Before the Stoke game, word started pouring in that Ozil was not too badly hurt, just a foot injury that is likely to keep him out for just one game.

Similarly, Arsene Wenger in his pre-match interview, described the injury as fairly minor.

As soon as the game kicked off, Ozil posted his own update on Instagram. Crucially, Ozil hopes to be back for the next match.

Arsenal’s next game is the small matter of a London derby with Chelsea, next Sunday at The Emirates.

See Mesut Ozil’s Instagram post below.

Balboa and me watching today's match against Stoke! Hopefully I'll be back well for the next match. But for now: COME ON YOU GUNNERS #coyg #bpl #Arsenal #afc
