Arsenal news: Why Unai Emery will SNUB Mesut Ozil after Man Utd result – Paul Merson

That’s the opinion of Paul Merson who believes the German ace will sit out once again.

Arsenal have impressed in securing a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford and a 4-2 win over rivals Tottenham last weekend.

And Merson thinks Emery will be hesitant to change anything drastic in his starting line-up.

He told Sky Sports: “Will Mesut Ozil return for Arsenal this weekend?

“I don’t see Unai Emery bringing him back in now as Arsenal will try to play in the same vein as they did against Tottenham and Manchester United.

“Huddersfield were bang unlucky against Bournemouth and I also thought they were unlucky against Brighton with Steve Mounie’s sending off.

“However, I don’t see anything but an Arsenal win.

“They will have too much for David Wagner’s side at the Emirates.”

Merson believes Arsenal will beat Huddersfield 3-0 at the Emirates.

Ozil has missed the last few matches with a back injury and Emery has spoken on his fitness ahead of facing Huddersfield.

“This morning he worked with the physiotherapist on the pitch, running and touching the ball.

“[Friday] will be the decision.”

Arsenal currently sit fifth in the Premier League table, level on points with Chelsea.

The Gunners are 10 points behind leaders Manchester City who sit top though.

Emery will be desperate for his side to finish in the top four and secure Champions League football.
