FORMER ARSENAL defender Martin Keown claimed Mesut Ozil must be ‘concerned’ with comments made by his manager Unai Emery.
The German was left out of Arsenal’s 2-1 away win against Bournemouth last week with Emery citing the physicality of the game was why Ozil did not play.

Emery said: "We thought how we can do better in the match, a very demanding match with physicality and intensity."
The comments made by Emery left Keown questioning what Ozil’s mentality must be like, as the former Arsenal skipper spoke to the Daily Mail.
Keown said: "Ozil must be asking himself why he is not in the team.
"He will point to the draw with Liverpool – Arsenal's best performance of the season – and can say that result was delivered with him in the team.
