By Tony Hughes
Mesut Ozil eased the fears of Arsenal supporters that he could miss their Premier League return against Swansea after being replaced at half-time for Germany.
The Gunners’ playmaker was taken off during the interval of the world champions’ 2-0 win over Northern Ireland on Tuesday night and replaced by Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan.
But Ozil assured his Twitter followers after the match that he is not suffering any major injury issue.
“Thanks for taking care because of my substitution but everything is all right guys,” he posted on his personal Twitter account accompanied by both a wink and a thumbs-up.
