Mesut Ozil has been passed fit for Arsenal's Premier League clash against Norwich at The Emirates on Saturday.

The record £42.5 million signing from Real Madrid was taken off for Germany during the week after picking up a knee problem, and on Thursday manager Arsene Wenger revealed the playmaker 'came back with a knock on the knee' and that it 'was just a kick'.

After having his knee assessed on Friday, Ozil has been passed fit and will play against Norwich as Arsenal look to maintain top spot in the Premier League.

Bacary Sagna, who has been out with a hamstring problem, has also been passed fit, as has Santi Cazorla.
