Arsenal team news: Wenger may drop Mesut Ozil for Bayern Munich clash
Arsenal team news: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is thinking about dropping star playmaker Mesut Ozil for this weeks clash with Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League.
The Telegraph states that the French tactician is weighing up a decision to remove Ozil from the starting line-up.
Arsenal travel to Germany to take on the Bundesliga champions Bayern on Wednesday evening.
Wenger agreed with reporters after Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Hull City that Ozil has been struggling in recent weeks.
The experinced manager’s selection decision has been made tougher following the form of Lucas Perez and Danny Welbeck’s return from injury.
“I felt he was not completely confident technically,” Wenger stated according to the Telegraph.
“That’s a problem because you think he can deliver something special. He did things that he is not used to doing.
“He needs to find confidence again. He misses chances that don’t look unfeasible.”
Arsenal returned to winning ways over the weekend following a 2-0 victory over relegation battlers Hull City.
The North London based club do however find themselves ten points behind league leaders Chelsea.
Ozil has provided eight assists and scored nine goals in 28 apperances for Gunners.
