Unai Emery makes Mesut Ozil decision as top 4 battle enters decisive final weeks

Premier League is edging closer to its end and the battle to be in the top 4 is getting harder.

Arsenal are currently 4th in the league with 63 points and will be playing an away game against Everton tomorrow, on April 7.

Ahead of the game, Unai Emery has spoken out on Mesut Ozil and his role at the club as the Gunners are fighting to make a Champions League return.

Asked by what had changed to convince Emery of Ozil’s worth, he said: “Sometimes it is because we need something different. Sometimes it is because he was injured.

“He was playing sometimes also because we needed him. Now it is the same. He is okay. He is training every day.

“He can play with the two systems, with the 4-2-3-1, maybe for him the best position, but sometimes we are also playing 4-3-1-2, he is playing like a team player.

“Sometimes also 3-4-1-2. We can change the system in the 90 minutes, also with him. Sometimes he can play slightly right and sometimes slightly left. For me the most important is to be ready, to be available for us for help or play.”
