Arsene Wenger said that he has not seen the German international for a week now.
Ozil has been under criticism for his under-par performances in Arsenal’s back-to-bak losses to Everton and Manchester City.
“I haven’t seen [Ozil] for a week,” Wenger said.
“It was an easy decision [to not include him]. He is still in bed.”
“He’s not available and I don’t think he will be available for the next game as he hasn’t done anything for a week.”
The former Real Madrid star is not expected to make a return before Gunners January 14 trip to Swansea City.
