EPL: Emery speaks on starting Ozil ahead of Chelsea clash
Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has hinted that Mesut Ozil is in contention to make his comeback against Chelsea this weekend.
Following last week’s defeat at West Ham, The gunners are currently six points adrift of their West London rivals in the race for fourth place and a Champions League qualifying position.
Ozil was not included in Emery’s matchday squad for the trip to the London Stadium due to tactical reasons and has not featured for the first team since Boxing Day when he was substituted at half time in the 1-1 draw at Brighton.
Asked whether Ozil would feature this weekend, sources quoted Emery as saying, “He has injuries, where sometimes he is okay, sometimes not okay. I want every player to be okay for every match and he is the same.
“He didn’t play the last game but this Saturday he could possibly be with us. Now he is training consistently.
“I want every player to give consistency. This is not always easy. What is most important is how he can help us.
