Mesut Ozil is a major doubt for Arsenal's clash with Huddersfield in midweek because of the illness that kept him out of the win over Burnley.
The 29-year-old German, whose Gunners future remains uncertain, was ordered to leave the team hotel ahead of the 1-0 win at Turf Moor because of the problem.
After Alexis Sanchez's late penalty moved Arsenal into the top four over rivals Tottenham, boss Arsene Wenger admitted: "I haven't even seen him.
"The doctor came to see me and said he had to travel back home, he was in the hotel with us. He travelled up with us, then travelled back.
"We brought (Ainsley) Maitland-Niles up, who arrived at 1pm because we had only 17 players.
"Will Ozil be available for Wednesday? Certainly he will be short. We will see what it is exactly."
Ozil's contract at Arsenal expires at the end of the season and reports over the weekend claimed he had agreed to join Barcelona - something Wenger has strongly denied.
