Arsenal boss Unai Emery has said Mesut Ozil is still training separately with a physio as he recovers from a back problem and remains a doubt for Saturday’s game against Huddersfield.

Meanwhile the Spaniard warned that the diagnosis for Rob Holding’s knee injury “is not good.”

Ozil has not played in nearly a month after being benched against Bournemouth and then missing the last three games with a recurrence of back spasms. Emery said he will make a decision on whether Ozil can feature on Saturday based on whether he can join in the full team training session on Friday.

“He had a backache and now he’s working with the physio,” Emery said. “We are going to look at when he can come back with us. This morning he worked with the physio on the pitch, running and touching the ball. Tomorrow will be the decision.”

Emery also reiterated that he fears Holding could be sidelined for a long time after he was carried out on a stretcher during Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Manchester United after injuring his knee.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Holding suffered a cruciate knee injury and is out for the season. However, at his news conference, Emery said it was too soon to give an exact estimate.

“We are waiting,” Emery said. “The club can give us communication about this.

“The best news for me is [being] calm, but the doctors are looking at him and they are going to communicate with us. At the moment, the first news is not good.” (ESPN)
