Egyptian International Mohamed Elneny has been named as a substitute for the Gunners' Carabao Cup semi-final tie against Chelsea on Wednesday.
The London clubs go head-to-head in the first leg of their semi-final Carabao Cup tie at Stamford Bridge، with the Chilean making the matchday squad.
Alexis Sanchez will also start on the bench after he rested for Arsenal’s 4-2 defeat to Nottingham Forest in the third round of the FA Cup but Alex Iwobi has been given the nod ahead of him، in a move that will only increase the speculation around the Chilean’s future.
Ozil has missed Arsenal’s last two games with a knee injury and he hasn’t recovered in time to form part of tonight’s squad. Danny Welbeck retains his spot from the Forest defeat and will play off of Alexandre Lacazette.
