Arsene Wenger Faces Delicate Situation With Off-Form Mesut Ozil At Arsenal

Show Grid

Arsenal's Mesut Ozil may be struggling for form but his manager Arsene Wenger would not be drawn into speculation that the Germany midfielder could be dropped for Wednesday's Champions League last 16, first leg at Bayern Munich.

With his contract expiring at the end of this season and Wenger reluctant to sign the new deal that has been offered to him, a fire-storm of anger from Arsenal fans continues to be blasted in his direction in recent weeks.

"I don't know the internal ongoings of Bayern Munich, but I think it was not the plan that the information of Phillip's retirement came out during the DFB-Pokal game against Wolfsburg", said Tarnat. There is no doubting that the Champions League is a competition that increasingly favours the big clubs but we shouldn't look past the point that it is also football at the highest level. Arsenal have plenty of forward options so there would be no problem on the flanks and Iwobi has the same sort of passing ability and awareness that we are used to from Ozil. He needs to find his confidence again.

"We've seen Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola arrive at Liverpool and City and they've not been successful either in terms of winning trophies".

Best Buy is one of the partners of Oculus to offer demonstrations and sell its Rift headset that started in April 2016. At that time, Best Buy's CEO said that having Oculus demo stations would be cool and fun for its customers.

They have faced Bayern Munich three times at this stage and the German side has prevailed each time, in 2004-5, 2012-13 and 2013-14. They have actually won two and drawn one of those six games while reinforcing the perception the German champions are a considerably superior side. We know the first game here is very important because we have the second game at home.

However, it appears coach Carlo Ancelotti will have to make do without them, with Ribery being restricted to individual training. He has since picked up 75 caps for his country and his style of goalkeeping has often seen him compared to the great Colombian stopper and favourite Faryd Mondragon.

Arsenal did go undefeated in group play, finishing ahead of Paris Saint-Germain, Ludogorets Razgrad and Basel.

Wednesday's clash will represent the 11th time these two teams have faced each other in a competitive clash, with Arsenal claiming three wins to Bayern's five.

Having finished above Paris Saint-Germain in Group A, the Gunners have the "advantage" of playing the second leg at the Emirates Stadium.
