Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger expects to have German playmaker Mesut Ozil available for the visit of Chelsea next Sunday.

The 27-year-old World Cup winner was forced to watch the goalless draw at Stoke City from the comfort of his sofa, having been ruled out by a slight foot problem which had bothered him in the 3-3 draw at Liverpool in midweek.

However, Wenger, whose side are 6/4 to be crowned champions, is confident the injury is only a minor one and expects Ozil to be fit and ready for the clash with the Blues at the Emirates Stadium next Sunday.

He told reporters after the stalemate in the Potteries lifted his side back to the top of the Premier League table on goal difference: "He had an inflammation on his foot and we looked and he was not very well.

"He was not 100 per cent at Liverpool, so I decided to leave him out. I think he should be back for next Sunday."

Meanwhile, Wenger admitted that his team had missed the creative spark of Ozil at the Britannia Stadium, adding: "We lacked a bit of creativity to force a way through and on top of that we missed good chances. They were fighting from the first to the last minute.

"We wanted to win the game, but looking at our history here it is a positive result. Looking at the results of the other teams that played at the top, it is a positive result.

"But, overall, we missed two points."
