Mesut Ozil had a strong run of form interrupted by a knee injury but could be back for the visit of Crystal Palace on Saturday but the words Wenger used in his press conference were hardly unequivocal.
Whereas the language used to discuss Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal indicated a strong likelihood that both would be available on Saturday and likely starting, the language around Mesut Ozil was slightly less certain. This may be splitting hairs to some extent but the feeling coming out of the press conference is that if the two center backs are 90% likely to feature, Ozil might be something more on the order of 75% likely. If you're playing the odds then expect all three to start. If you are risk averse or have other options (from a fantasy point of view) then maybe be a bit more conservative with Ozil.
