Arsenal's Mesut Ozil shows rest has done him good with back garden keepy-uppys

Mesut Ozil showed off his skills at home as he prepares for a possible return to the Arsenal starting line-up on Saturday.
Ozil has been bothered by a knee injury and last started a game on September 9, when Arsenal beat Bournemouth 3-0, only coming off the bench for seven minutes when they beat West Brom 2-0 before the international break.
The Germany international was left out by national boss Joachim Low for their World Cup European Qualifiers against Northern Ireland and Azerbaijan, given extra time to get back to 100 per cent fitness with the Germans already having secured their place in Russia.
But, after performing a set of keepy-uppys in his back garden, Ozil now has his sights set on a return to Arsene Wenger's side when they face Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday.
His name was back in the headlines on Thursday when Wenger admitted Ozil and Alexis Sanchez might have to be sold in January with their contractual situations yet to be resolved.
Ozil and Sanchez are out of contract at the end of the season and Wenger said: "Once you are in our kind of situation we have envisaged every kind of solution so yes, it's possible."
