Arsenal's Ozil ready to start more away games, says Emery
Published in Ahram Online on 06 - 04 - 2019

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is in line to feature more regularly in away matches starting with Sunday's trip to Everton as the north London side look to clinch a top-four Premier League finish, manager Unai Emery said on Friday.
Ozil has started only four of Arsenal's 14 away games in the league this season with Emery often benching the German playmaker, starting him only in home games where they have won 10 in a row.
Five of Arsenal's remaining seven league games are away as they look to return to the Champions League after a two-year hiatus.
"It depends on each match, sometimes it was because we needed something different, sometimes he was injured," Emery told reporters when asked about Ozil's absence from the starting lineup in away games.
"Now he's OK, training every day and he can play in different systems. He's working very well, playing very well, he's helping us. I'm very happy with him."
Ozil has generally played as a central playmaker this season, either behind one striker or behind the pairing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
Emery said the latter role made Ozil play like a "team player" with his versatility to thrive in different formations proving to be useful.
"4-2-3-1 is maybe the best position for him, but also sometimes 4-3-1-2 where he is playing like a team player, and also 3-4-1-2," Emery added.
"We can change the different systems with him and he can play to the left or right. Most important is to be ready and available to help us and now he is."
A win or a draw for Arsenal on Sunday will take them up to third in the standings above rivals Tottenham Hotspur with six more games to play.
