Arsenal made it nine successive wins in all competitions on Sunday after the Gunners swept London-rivals Fulham aside without their influential play maker Mesut Ozil.
The German star was a surprise absentee from the matchday squad as there had been no mention of an issue prior to kick-off. Ozil enjoyed a 25-minute cameo on Thursday in Europa League and had been expected to start at Craven Cottage, but manager Unai Emery confirmed the player had a back spasm ruling him out of the game. "Yesterday he came in with pain and he cannot train yesterday or play today." Having retired from international football, Ozil can focus on his recovery during the break with the aim of being fit for the clash with Leicester City when Arsenal’s Premier League fixtures resume on October 22. Alex Iwobi came into the side, but it was second half substitutes Aaron Ramsey and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang who had the biggest say in the outcome scoring three times in the last 23 minutes to secure a comfortable 5-1 victory.
