MESUT OZIL has the fire back in his belly following his Man of the Match performance against rivals Tottenham.
The Germany international was diving into tackles on the training pitch ahead of their Europa League match with Koln on Thursday.
With the Gunners already qualified Ozil is likely to be rested for the trip to his home country with Arsene Wenger likely to feature an inexperienced squad.
Youngster Eddie Nketiah, who took the brunt of Ozil's challenge, trained amongst the first team and is pushing for his first competitive start in Arsenal colours.
The 18-year-old played 22 minutes of Arsenal's 0-0 draw against Red Star Belgrade in their last European outing but will be hoping for further time to impress the gaffer.
Young talents Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson could also make appearances with one eye on a tough away trip to Burnley on Sunday.
But trio Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Calum Chambers could all be rested with slight injury doubts.
Morale amongst the Arsenal camp looked in high spirits following their 2-0 win against Spurs.

Alexandre Lacazette and Mathieu Debuchy were snapped laughing whilst Alexis Sanchez had a big grin on his face.
The futures of Sanchez and Ozil haven't become any clearer with their contracts expiring in the summer.
The pair have rejected multiple offers to extend their stay at the Emirates and it appears increasingly likely that both will leave the club.
And their new head of recruitment, Sven Mislintat, may have to get to work immediately to start scouting their replacements.
