Mesut Ozil is in danger of leaving his relationship with Arsenal at breaking point after his latest cry off.

Incredibly, Ozil has now missed as many games as he has played this season through either illness, a back injury, a knee problem or being left out.

Ozil, 30, who is Arsenal’s biggest earner on £350,000-a-week, reported in sick for Saturday’s win at Huddersfield which will raise concerns as to why he is missing so many games.

World Cup winner Ozil has made 18 appearances in all competitions this season but has struggled badly under Unai Emery’s regime, although the feeling at the club is that the manager is trying everything to try and make it work.
