This was the game that Arsenal played and won over Watford with a score of 2-0. Cech suffered an injury in his hamstring which happened during the first half of the game at Emirates Stadium; Arsenal manager, however fears that, due to the injury, the star player of Chelsea would have to be kept on the sidelines till his injury has healed completely.
Being 26 years of age, his health and fitness to play is being assessed by the medical team of Arsenal. As per experts, having suffered a hamstring injury, he would have to lay up for a period of two to three weeks and the team management hopes that no more period is required for healing. Once confirmation is given for Cech’s injury absence, Emery would have to rely on the skills of Bernd Leno, who also proved a reliable ally in the game against Watford.

Arsene Wenger says that the missed penalty against Bayern Munich has affected the German star Mesut Ozil psychologically, but he is hoping that the club’s record signing can overcome the issue by performing exceptionally well in the second leg. Signed from Real Madrid for £ 42 million, Ozil has been one of the best players for Arsenal this campaign. However, his performances have dropped in recent weeks and the missed penalty against Bayern Munich drew a lot of criticism. A goal would have given Arsenal hope of recovering in the second leg.
As it is, they face a mountain to climb due to the 2-0 deficit on aggregate. Ozil has been looking tired in recent weeks and Wenger says that this tiredness is not just physical. Hence, he decided to leave out the 24-year-old from a couple of matches. This seems to have worked its magic after the midfielder returned to his best in the 4-1 win over Everton on Saturday. This helped the club reached the semifinals of the FA Cup after a long time. Ozil was the best player on the pitch against Everton and Wenger says that the player has benefited from the period of rest.
Up until now, the German international has been used to a winter break, but he has been playing without one for the first time this year.
“I think it [penalty miss] affected him mentally too much. It was not only physical, it was mental. He had the feeling he let the team down at a very important moment of the game. That affected his performance very much. Psychologically sometimes the wound is like a physical one. You can talk and talk and talk but it takes time. You just have to leave it to time. I think he is over it,” said Wenger.
Arsenal’s club record signing Mesut Ozil has come under intense criticism in the last few weeks following a run of poor performances, which reached its peak in the 5-1 thumping at the hands of Liverpool. Ozil was brought to the club for a record £ 42.5 million from Real Madrid in the summer. He provided an instant lift to the club, which was reeling on the back of the opening day defeat at the hands of Aston Villa. Arsenal managed to go through several months on the high of signing Ozil that they have been top of the table for most of the season.
The performances of the German, though, have dropped in recent weeks and he was at his worst in the defeat against Liverpool on Saturday. He was responsible for two of the five goals scored by Liverpool, as he lost the ball very carelessly in the middle of the park. Amidst a lot of criticism for the player, manager Arsene Wenger has defended him ahead of the match with Manchester United. He says that every Arsenal player was guilty of poor performance against Liverpool and it was wrong to condemn only Ozil for this defeat.
He expected the German to come back strongly when Arsenal take on United at the Emirates looking to go top of the table.
“It’s always a disappointment to lose a game but we’ve been very stable defensively; we’d just been on a 10-game unbeaten run so you can’t see one game as a trend. It’s down to the team to respond in a positive way. Mesut Ozil? He was like everybody on Saturday – he was not in a good day. There’s nobody really to ostracise from that game – we are just conscious we were not good enough,” said Wenger in the pre-match press conference.
Arsenal is not a club characterized on spending huge amounts of money on a player but they headlined the news when Mesut Ozil was penned up for a club-record fee of £42.5 million.
The money was however well spent as the German player is playing a key part in Arsenal superb form that sees them toppling the Premier League in 1st place. The coach of Manchester United revealed that he had the chance on signing Ozil before the German made his move to Arsenal.
Moyes said. “We didn’t need that position at the time. I didn’t even say it was an interest, it was put to us and it was just something at the time we didn’t need.
“As a very private person I’m enjoying the area, there’s always something to see, something to discover.”
Arsenal is leading the charge not only in the Premier League but also in Group F of the Champions League as they are starting to reveal themselves as a top team for this season and Ozil plays a crucial part in their recent burst of success.
Mesut Ozil had to be the scapegoat for Real Madrid as they signed Gareth Bale but this move gave Arsenal the chance to sign a world class midfielder which has lifted the hopes for the English club to win the trophy they have failed to obtain since 2003.
The former Real Madrid player talked about what it feels like to be in Arsenal.
“Everyone is equal at this club from the cleaning lady to the chairman.
“Everyone is important, but nobody thinks they’re better than anyone else. Everyone treats each other with politeness and respect. The city is fantastic’’.
“I think it’s one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
New Arsenal record signing Mesut Ozil has said that he is ready to win the Premier league title with the club. The German midfielder recently made the £ 42.5 million move to the Emirates stadium from Real Madrid. He comes with the reputation of being one of the best playmakers in the world right now. Only Lionel Messi has created more chances than him in the last four years. Boasting this incredible statistic, Ozil is ready to fire Arsenal to their first league title since 2004. The last Arsenal team that won the title went on an unbeaten run to the season.
This time, though, Arsenal have already lost a match and it came in the first match of the season. Since then, they have recovered to be in a challenging position in the last two encounters. Ozil is expected to make his Arsenal debut in the difficult away match against Sunderland. Winning this HGH encounter would put Arsenal on the top of the table. Olivier Giroud has started the season in sparkling form and is already the top scorer in the league.
Arsenal have broken their transfer record quite remarkably by managing to pay more than £ 40 million for the player on transfer deadline day. Wenger is hoping that this proves to be a shrewd investment.
‘When he first went to Madrid we were in touch. We wanted him then. His style of play will integrate him immediately. His movement, his ability and his creativity. He has the attributes of being one of the leaders in our team,’ said Wenger. ‘I want to play attacking and good football. ‘Attractive football is good but we need to be successful, too. I can’t promise we will win trophies but I can promise we will give our all,’ said the midfielder in his first press conference as an Arsenal player.
