Mesut Ozil was not in the squad of Arsenal that traveled to the London Stadium to face West Ham United and gunners boss Unai Emery said that the German international wasn’t among the required players to take part in this game.
Arsenal head coach Unai Emery is under a lot of pressure to give answers on why he has sidelined Mesut Ozil this season because it would have been justifiable if the gunners were at least winning matches but the defeat to West Ham United made everyone to point fingers to the Spanish coach.
The gunners will on Saturday face Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium and Unai Emery was asked in the pre-match press conference on whether Mesut Ozil would be involved in this game, and he replied telling Arsenal Media.
“He’s training consistently with his work over the past two weeks and I think he can be.” said Unai Emery hinting that the German international could be on the team sheet that faces Chelsea.
Mesut Ozil has taken part in Arsenal’s training sessions done this week and this makes it 14 days since he returned to full training but he is yet to play but hopefully, he might be on the bench this weekend as Arsenal welcome Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium.
Mesut Ozil will try to make sure that he earns the support of Unai Emery in their game against Chelsea and he has in the past always been having great performances against The Blues when they make a visit to the Emirates Stadium.
