Arsenal manager Unai Emery have confirmed the team duo Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac back to the team squad to face Burnley this weekend after they were held up at knife point some weeks ago.

Both players have been under protection after the harrow attack last month but Unai Emery hope they are 100% ready to face Burnley saturday.

Emery said: “Mesut Ozil is a little sick, he didn’t train yesterday but he trained today with us.”Am I pleased that they’re back? Of course. For us, for me, first they’re a person and second they’re a player.

“We can choose them to help us in matches – and the first match is Saturday.”We are 100 per cent with them. The mentality is now on focusing on us, for training and matches.”

Asked whether the players were safe and how that may affect their mindsets, Emery said: “The club is working with them to help them. At the moment they are calm with us every day.”They are helping them in training, in their preparation and being in the squad consistently.”That will help with their minds.”
