Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mesut Ozil both missed Germany training on Wednesday morning due to injury.

Ozil was forced off late on during Arsenal’s 2-0 win at Everton last weekend after picking up a suspected ankle problem.

Speaking after the game, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger played down Ozil’s problem but it appears to have kept him out of training as Germany prepare for their friendly clash with England this weekend.

Schweinsteiger, meanwhile, is understood to have missed Wednesday’s session due to a knee injury.

The Manchester United midfielder has only just returned to action for the Red Devils after a lay-off due to a knee problem.

Ozil has been a regular fixture in the Arsenal side so far this season and took to social media on Tuesday to quash suggestions that he is planning on seeking a transfer away from the club in the summer transfer window.
