Arsenal news: Mesut Ozil is key to success under Unai Emery for this reason - pundit | Football | Sport

That’s the view of pundit Danny Mills who has seen Arsenal go 15 games unbeaten in all competitions.

They have won 12 of them with Aubameyang bagging the Premier League player of the month award for October after netting five goals in three appearances.

It comes despite the Gabon international starting just one of those games as Emery looks to find a way to play both him and Lacazette.

The Frenchman normally plays through the middle with Aubameyang being pushed onto the wing.

But Mills believes the system works well as it allows Ozil to thrive as well.

“You’ve got two players in great form at the moment – Aubameyang and Lacazette,” Mills said on Sky Sports’ The Debate.

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

“He [Emery] has managed to fit them in and you can then afford to play Ozil in that No 10 role.

“Whatever you think, he [Ozil] is a fantastic footballer.

“He’s absolutely brilliant. His delivery, his passing, he’s got a languid style that divides opinion but he is a magnificent footballer.

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

“Those players have got pace, they’ve got power, they’ve got quality and they are benefitting from that.”

Arsenal may have Ozil around for a while longer after he dropped a hint on his future.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, Ozil said when asked about spending his entire career at Arsenal: “Why not? I am still young, I am 30.

“In football, everything is possible but I am really happy to play for a big club like Arsenal.

“I just enjoy it and I can imagine finishing my career at Arsenal.”

“Maybe aged 38!” he laughed when asked about when he imagines he might retire.

“No, really, I always think if I feel well, I could go on until I am 35 or 36, I don’t know. If everything is good, we’ll see.”
