Former Chelsea assistant, Ray Wilkins, has some rather unusual advice for Arsene Wenger regarding Mesut Ozil.
Wilkins believes that Wenger should only play Ozil at the Emirates because he doesn’t work hard enough, which is what the team needs when they’re away from home.
“I don’t think he will get back in the team. The way Wenger set things out at Stamford Bridge – he did it remarkably well,” Wilkins told AskFans.
“I would only play Ozil at the Emirates, personally. Away from home, you have to fight and you have to fight to eleven. You can’t fight as ten.
“Ozil is a wonderfully gifted footballer, don’t get me wrong. I love him to pieces, but you have to work for the team.
“When you lose the ball – get yourself back and start working the for team. If you look at the team on Sunday, they were fantastic. They had a fantastic work ethic.
“(Granit) Xhaka never left the front of the back four, (Aaron) Ramsey went off and did what he did – they didn’t play Sanchez, they didn’t play Ozil and it worked.
“Ozil has to conform to what’s happening with the team. As an attacking force, he’s wonderful but when you lose the ball, you need to lose it as eleven, not ten and that’s what happens.”
