In the driving seat: Ozil was said to have been involved in a collision with a photographer on Friday night
Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil was questioned by the police over allegations the car he was driving was in a collision with a photographer a night before his side took maximum three points against Sunderland in the English Premier League.

Ozil was not even named among the subs by boss Arsene Wenger for the 4-0 win over Sunderland, the day after the alleged incident which happened in Highgate, North London. 

The £42.5million record signing was in Germany on Monday night after being given a two-day break to get away from problems on and off the pitch.

He was rested from Saturday's team following the Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: 'Police were called at approximately 7.18pm on Friday 21 February to reports of an alleged collision between a vehicle and a member of the public. 

'The member of the public, a man in his 30s, sustained minor injuries. Officers have spoken to the driver of the vehicle.'

The spokesman said inquiries were continuing and no arrests have been made.

Ozil has been criticised for his recent dip in form, which was highlighted as he missed a penalty in the Gunners' 2-0 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.

He has scored four goals for Arsenal in the Premier League and made eight assists in 21 days, but hasn't scored since early December and has been on disappointing form.
Impact: Ozil has scored five goals for Arsenal since arriving from Real Madrid for just over £42million

The former Real Madrid star has gone back to Germany in an attempt to breathe fresh life into his Arsenal career, given the time off by Wenger. 

Wenger, who hopes to have injured Aaron Ramsey back for the clash against Tottenham on March 16, remain determined to make a success of the playmaker's move to London and hope the short trip back to Germany can help rejuvenate the 25-year-old.
