Mesut Ozil appears to be in high spirits after being dropped by Unai Emery for Arsenal’s Europa League clash against BATE Borisov on Thursday evening.

The midfielder has played just 102 minutes of football this year and missed Arsenal’s win over Huddersfield Town on Saturday due to an illness.

Ozil recovered enough to take part in training on Wednesday but Emery insists the 30-year-old, who is the club’s top earner on £350,000 a week, is not fit enough to take part in Thursday’s Europa League tie and did not travel with the team to Belarus.

‘We are here with the players who I think are OK to play,’ Emery said before the team flew out to Belarus on Wednesday.

‘The players not in the squad is because Ramsey has not trained with us, Sokratis has started to train but not enough, Mesut is the same.’
