Arsenal news: Mesut Ozil is the key to success under Unai Emery for that reason – pundit | Football | Sports


It is the view of Pundit Danny Mills who has seen Arsenal go 15 matches unbeaten in all competitions.

They have won 12 of them with Aubameyang bagging Premier League players in the month's October award after having scored five goals in three appearances.

It comes despite Gabon's international starting only one of the games that Emery looks like finding a way to play both him and Lacazette.

The Frenchman usually plays through the middle with Aubameyang pushing his wing.

But Mills believes that the system works well as it allows Ozil to enjoy it too.

"You have two players in good shape at the moment – Aubameyang and Lacazette," Mills said at Sky Sports "Debate.

"You play Lacazette through the middle, Aubameyang out wide.

"He [Emery] have managed to fit them in and you can afford to play Ozil in the No. 10 role.

"Whatever you think, he [Ozil] is a fantastic football player.

"He is absolutely brilliant. His delivery, his pass, he has a languid style that makes sense but he is an amazing football player.

"Get him on the ball and he will create chances.

"The players are in tact, they have the power, they have quality and they benefit from it."

Arsenal may have Ozil around for a while longer after releasing a clue on his future.

When talking about the evening standard, Ozil said when asked to spend his entire career in Arsenal: "Why not? I'm still young, I'm 30 years old.

"In football, everything is possible, but I'm really happy to play for a big club like Arsenal.

"I'm just enjoying myself and I can imagine finishing my career at Arsenal."

"Maybe 38 years!" He laughed when he was asked when he imagined he would retire.

"No, I always think that if I'm fine, I can go on until I'm 35 or 36, I do not know. If everything is fine, we'll see."
