MERSON AGREES WITH WILSHERE ON OZIL

Paul Merson is in agreement with Jack Wilshere over the role of German World Cup winner Mesut Ozil at Arsenal. Paul Merson and Jack Wilshere are ex-Arsenal midfielders. They talked about Ozil and their former club while they were on Sky Sports.

According to Jack Wilshere, Arsenal would have been a better team this season with the inclusion of Ozil in the starting XI. Wilshere is adamant that Mesut Ozil still has the quality to create opportunities to the Arsenal attackers.Gunners attackers like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette have been starved of service for the better part of this Premier League season.

Paul Merson agreed with Jack Wilshere as he revealed that Arsenal still need the quality of Mesut Ozil on the ball and that the Gunners are worse without the German in their squad. Mesut Ozil has not played for Arsenal in any competitive game since March. He made some appearances on the substitute bench when football resumed from the enforced Coronavirus break at the end of last season. Ozil didn’t feature in the last ten leaguegames upon the return of football at the end of last term. He also missed out on the club’s FA Cup title triumph.

Arsenal have struggled to create chances for their strikers this season and that has led to the lack of goals in the team especiallyin the Premier League. The Gunners are one of the lowest scorers in the league with just ten goals from ten games. Gunnersfaithfuls have called on manager Mikel Arteta to bring him back into the fold but the player was not registered for the Premier League this season and can’t play until Arsenal decide to register him in January ahead of the second half of the season. Ozil was also left out of the Europa League squad.
