Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has alerted his Facebook fans by letting them know he is back in training and will be fit to play a part in their next game against Stoke City on March 1.

The German midfielder has 16 million people that have 'liked' his official Facebook page. He missed the Gunners' last game which was a 4-1 win over Sunderland at the Emirates Stadium last weekend.

Ozil said: "Back in training after my injury, getting ready for the match on Saturday."

The 25-year old was signed in the summer transfer window on deadline day from Spanish side Real Madrid, and was Arsenal's record signing with the London outfit paying a hefty £42.4 million for his services.

Ozil enjoyed a blistering start to his Arsenal career but has somewhat stuttered lately, receiving criticism from both the fans and media. 

He was made a scapegoat following their 5-1 hammering by rivals Liverpool, and then missed a penalty against Bayern Munich in the last-16 first-leg tie at home, which Arsenal then went on to lose 2-0.

Arsenal are still in the title race though, currently sitting in second position in the Premier League table behind leaders Chelsea and are only one point behind. 

Arsene Wenger's team will want to be at full strength when they head to the Britannia Stadium on Saturday in order to maintain their title challenge.
