Kolasinac on Ozil
Mesut Ozil has not had the greatest start to the 2019/20 campaign.
Before the Liverpool game earlier this week, the German was omitted from Arsenal’s previous six matchday squads.
However, Unai Emery finally gave the midfield maestro some minutes on Wednesday.
Ozil started in Arsenal’s League Cup tie at Anfield and was arguably their standout star, providing two assists.
Ozil was somewhat surprisingly subbed 65 minutes into the clash but Emery explained afterwards that they had decided before the game to play Ozil for that period of time.
Now, one of Ozil’s Arsenal teammates Sead Kolasinac has been speaking about the midfielder, stating he is a bit unhappy at the minute.
Kolasinac also claimed that Ozil is doing extra sessions to make sure he is at the level he needs to be at:
“Mesut is a really driven player.
“He is a bit unhappy at the minute but you would never see that in his training. He is doing everything he can. He is doing extra sessions to make sure he is at the level he needs to be.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
Ozil to feature vs Wolves?
Arsenal are now set to take on Wolves on Saturday at the Emirates.
The North London outfit begin the weekend 5th in the English top-flight but they could move as low as 10th, should they fail to see off Wolves.
After such an exemplary display vs Liverpool, it would probably not be the best idea for Emery to omit Arsenal from Saturday’s matchday squad.
And it doesn’t sound like the Spaniard will be doing so. When speaking about Ozil after Liverpool, Emery stated they will look at the possibility of using the 31-year-old again:
“He was very positive every time and I think he played a very good match.
“We have a match on Saturday and we will look at the possibility to use him again alongside other players and this is the way sometimes.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.
