Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claims that Mesut Ozil's injury will not stop him from playing against Norwich City this weekend.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is confident that Mesut Ozil will overcome a minor knee problem to face Norwich City this weekend.

The Germany international was substituted during his national side's World Cup qualifier over Sweden in midweek after picking up a knock.

However, Wenger has said that the problem should not keep him out of Saturday's Premier League game at the Emirates Stadium.

The Frenchman told Arsenal's official website: "He is alright. He came back with a knock on the knee, but it was just a kick.

"We will have a test on Friday to see if he is fit enough for Saturday or not. When you have not played, there is always a little doubt, but not a major one."

Arsenal currently sit top of the Premier League table.
