The Germany international made his return from a hamstring injury last weekend as he helped the Gunners to a 3-0 victory against Hull at the KC Stadium.

And the playmaker, who joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in a £37.5m deal back in September, is looking forward to lining up for Arsene Wenger’s men in the FA Cup showpiece on 17 May.

Ozil wrote on his Facebook page: “Dear fans, I’m still happy about the fact that I was able to play last Sunday for Arsenal. and we even won 3:0. I think that we are on the way up after a rather difficult time…

“There are only two goals for the rest of the season: to be among the first four of the Premier League and to win my first title this year in the UK – the FA Cup! all we need is 4 x 90 minutes of full concentration and then it’s all in our hands.

“I can’t wait to play for the first time in Wembley as a Gunner after missing the semi-final due to my injury.

“I want to thank all who supported me during the last weeks – especially you! I constantly followed your comments on Facebook. I was really happy about all the get well soon wishes during these difficult moments. Your Mesut.”
