Mesut Ozil’s future at Arsenal is again in the spotlight after he was left out of the squad that lost to Tottenham on Wednesday night.
The Gunners are out of the Carabao Cup after losing 2-0 to their arch-rivals at the Emirates Stadium as goals by Son Heung-min and Dele Alli did the damage.

Ozil’s non-selection was again one of the main talking points after the game and boss Unai Emery was particularly evasive when asked about his future.
Ozil was not included in the matchday squad and his future at the Emirates Stadium looks bleak, to say the least. “It was a tactical decision, I thought the players today that are with us, were for us the best for this match,” Emery said.
“We have 24 or 25 players and when they are playing in one or not playing in another it is for me the decision and today it is tactical. “The focus is to analyse this match and for Saturday, it is a very important match.
Tomorrow we are going to train with every player. “I am thinking about the match on Saturday and not thinking about another situation. Every player is important, I decided he didn’t play and it was only a tactical decision.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
