Why Mesut Ozil Didn’t Start West Brom Victory, Arsene Wenger Reveals




Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed the reason why Mesut Ozil was dropped from their 2-0 win over West Brom at the Emirates on Monday night.

Two goals from Alexandre Lacazette ensured the Gunners cruised past the Baggies as they made way into the upper half of the Premier League table, much to the delight of the club fans.

Mesut Ozil who has come under criticism from several fans due to his laxity in games was a surprise omission from the starting lineup but came on as a 83rd-minute substitute for Alexis Sanchez.

After the game, Wenger said Ozil has missed some of the recent games against Koln, Chelsea and Doncaster due to his fitness worries, citing a problem in his knee as a reason why he ‘hasn’t practised a lot in the last two weeks.’

Arsenal are expected to travel to Belarus in the midweek, where they will play against Bate Borisov in their second game in the Europa League.

The German playmaker is on the last year of his contract at the Emirates and could be allowed to leave the club as a free agent next summer along with Alexis Sanchez who was close to joining Manchester City during the last summer transfer window.

Why Arsenal must complete move for 44m-rated star in January

Ibukun Italoye

Premier League champions Manchester City are reportedly far from reaching an agreement with Raheem Sterling over a new contract, that’s according to the Guardian.

The England international joined the Etihad outfits from Liverpool for £44m in 2015 and he will see out the contract by the end of this season.

Though Guardiola has charged his employers to ensure the 23-year-old renew his contract, the club’s hierarchy are yet to convince the player into extending his deal with the team.

Arsenal must explore the contract saga between both parties to capture the player’s signature by launching a mouthwatering bid for the winger.

Since they parted ways with Alexis Sanchez — who joined Manchester United in the previous winter market, Arsenal are yet to find the perfect man to replace the Chilean at the right wing position.

Since Guardiola took charge of Manchester City, Sterling has improved tremendously and his end product is far better and impressive than his time at Anfield Stadium.

Though Unai Emery has a huge number of centre-forwards in the team, that can’t be said of a winger with great pace, direct run, fast decision-making ability, among others.

All of these traits plus goalscoring ability are all embedded in the 23-year-old winger and that makes him the best player to partner Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the right side of attack.

His inclusion to the Gunners setup would surely make the Gunners frontline more deadly than ever.

Manchester City were humiliated by Ligue 1 side Lyon at the Etihad Stadium last night, though, Pep Guardiola wasn’t in the dugout as he’s serving a match ban.

Due to the Guardiola’s absence, Mikel Arteta — who nearly replace Arsene Wenger but was beaten by Unai Emery — became the Citizens manager for the first time in his managerial career.

Though Arteta would be proud for making his debut appearance as a coach, yesterday’s result was unacceptable for a team who many tipped as favourites to win the Champions League trophy this season.

The Premier League title holder conceded two goals in the first period of the game but had to wait until the second half before scoring their first goal of the night which turned out to be a mere consolation.

Having seen Arteta’s lack of experience reflected in yesterday’s 2-1 defeat to Lyon, Arsenal fans took to Twitter to appreciate the club’s hierarchy for ignoring their former midfielder while choosing Wenger’s successor.

Here are some of their tweets via their respective accounts

Gaming Alimonda believes Arsenal dodged a bullet by hiring Emery rather than Arteta

Another fan felt for Arteta who made a losing debut last night. However, he praised Sven Mislintant for signing an experienced Unai Emery instead.

Lotterychef and Ashraf unanimously tweeted that the Gunners escaped Arteta’s bullet, claiming he would have brought more failures to the team.

To be fair to the former Arsenal midfielder, it’s is too early to criticize his coaching abilities.

It took Unai Emery three matches to get a win, therefore, Arteta needs more games to prove his qualities.
