Arsenal was last night humbled by Liverpool thanks to goals from Firmino (3), Mane and Salah and this defeat leaves the hopes of the gunners to make it to the Premier League top four in the air. Unai Emery must be feeling a lot of pressure right now because he has been blamed for his team’s loss against the Reds.
Mesut Ozil did not travel with the rest of the Arsenal team to Liverpool and missed the match because of a knee injury which he reportedly sustained during training on Friday. Even though most reports have claimed that Mesut Ozil got injured but some few Arsenal fans and pundits believe that it is a lie to cover up Unai Emery’s decision to leave him out of the squad.
There has been many reports going on about the current situation of Mesut Ozil at the Emirates Stadium and it’s believed that the German international has made it clear that he can’t be able to adapt to Unai Emery’s style of play. Arsenal boss Unai Emery faced the media after the 5-1 thrashing and when asked if Ozil is injured, he replied saying; “Yes”.
The reporter then asked if it’s serious and Unai Emery replied saying;
“His knee. I don’t know if it’s big or not big, but it’s his knee.” Unai Emery told Arsenal’s official website.
So it seems the Arsenal head coach doesn’t have more information about the injury of Mesut Ozil but he will probably be in the squad that faces Fulham on Tuesday.
