October 31, 2019

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has explained why he subbed off Mesut Ozil during their Carabao Cup defeat to Liverpool.

The Spaniard handed Ozil his first start in over a month at Anfield. The German impressed for the Gunners, playing a crucial role in two of their five goals.

Arsenal fans reacted badly to his 65th-minute substitution, but Emery says it was decided before the match. Asked about Ozil’s performance and surprising substitution, Emery told reporters: “He played very well. He used his skills to help the team and was always positive.

“The substitution was decided before the match so he didn’t get tired.”
