Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is contemplating resting Mesut Özil in UEFA champions league this week according to the Evening Standard.
The Gunners take on Bayern Munich in Tuesday’s clash the German giants. The North London Based side have gotten off to a slow start having lost they’re opening game against Zagreb then drawing their second game verses Olympiakos.
“I don’t know yet but there is no obvious reason to change completely the team. Maybe one or two I do not know yet. We will have to see how everybody recovers,” Wenger was quoted as saying by the Standard.
“I could rest a little bit Ozil and Sanchez and we have of course to put pace into this game and play against a big team, but we know we have proved ourselves in the Champions League.”
Özil played a staring role in Arsenal’s 3-0 victory over Watford in the Premier League last weekend.
The 27-year-old set up Alexis Sanchez’s opener and Olivier Giroud’s goal in the 68th minute. The Germany international was taken off in place of Arteta in the 81st minute.
Arsenal ended up winning the game and moving back into second place overtaking Manchester United who temporarily moved in second place following their 3-0 win over Everton.
The Gunners have now won back-to-back games in the league and take on Bayern Munich next in the Champions League.
