Arsenal hero Merson continues Ozil criticism: He shouldn't start against Watford

Alexis Sanchez's condition will be assessed ahead of Saturday's game

Alexis Sanchez's condition will be assessed ahead of Saturday's game

Both Ozil and Sanchez could start on the bench at Watford, with the former only having returned to full training this week and the latter just back from worldwide duty with Chile. "But I have many players - we spoke about Jack, we spoke about Iwobi", Wenger said. 'We live in the world where people have opinions and sometimes they are right and sometimes they are not always proven right on the longer period.

"You need players who have quality, and Ozil is one of the best players in the world".

Sead Kolasinac has praised Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, and claimed the club would be happy to keep them amid their contract disputes with the club, as it seems that the duo will be departing sooner rather than later.

Arsene are preparing to make the short trip to Watford on Saturday and Arsene Wenger has a number of big decisions to make in regards to his starting XI.

He was then asked if that meant they could leave in January and he said: "Yes, it's..." 'I genuinely think he wants to stay, I'm always positive about that'.

Merson played under Wenger during the Frenchman's first season in North London and under Redknapp at Portsmouth in 2003. I thought 'what have I done coming here - this is going to be embarrassing'.

"But I believe to play at the top level as well, it is part of dealing with that kind of disappointment".

Arsenal are now fifth the Premier League table ahead of their clash at Watford. You can not ask a guy not to go into any contact.

"Watford are another side with a better record away from home so far this season, but Marco Silva is a manager I have a lot of time for and I expect the hosts to get at least a point against the Gunners".
