Ozil "should be ready" for Arsenal's match at Everton this weekend, the club's official website reports.

Ozil missed Arsenal's Premiership opener, as well as their Champions League qualifier Tuesday, as he builds his fitness following this summer's World Cup triumph. The German playmaker is widely expected to make his season debut at Goodison Park, where he should once again feature in the Gunners' "No. 10" role. Following nine assists in 26 appearances last season, Ozil is among the favorites to lead England's top-flight in helpers this term.

Ozil picked up an assist in Germany's 7-1 win over Brazil in the World Cup semifinal on Tuesday.

Ozil missed a good chance to give Germany an 8-0 lead, but he could hardly have been blamed at that point. The Arsenal midfielder hasn't been a greatly productive player in the tournament, with Toni Kroos and Sami Khedira both outplaying him.
