Ian Wright warns Arsenal can’t afford to leave out Mesut Ozil

'The players who were here were the ones who deserved to be at this match.

"But I always think it is such a short career".

The decision to leave out Ozil will again raise eyebrows, with it not being the first time Emery has decided that he is better off without the German in his matchday squad.

"If you are realistic, you can always see the player's point of view. Obviously, he is earning fantastic money here, but the money in China is a different kettle of fish".

Nasri signed at the end of December, on the day he completed a doping ban received for using an intravenous-drip treatment.

The 30-year-old joined the north Londoners from Los Blancos in 2013 in a deal worth €47 million, and his current deal with the club is due to expire in 2021. "N'Golo Kante and Claude Makelele, those types of players are what he reminds me of because he completely breaks things up and gets the team ticking". After I lost one year, I didn't want to go somewhere "exotic". I can't put myself in his shoes.

"Samir set it back and I knew I was in the box but I didn't really know where the goal was because I was stood side-on".

Nasri set up Rice's victor against an Arsenal team who are struggling for form away from home.

But Emery instead opted to play Granit Xhaka alongside Matteo Guendouzi in the central midfield area, with Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette playing in support of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Mesut Ozil didn't even appear on the bench for Arsenal with uncertainty over the playmaker's future. It will be a hard game but if we want to be up there, we have to win.

"We also respect them and they have good players".
