Unai Emery did not give much background as to why star midfielder Mesut Ozil was excluded from the squad to play Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday.
The Spanish manager opted to go with Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi instead of the Germany international despite a lack of creative players in the team.

Emery spoke to Sky Sports before the game and bluntly justified his reasons for not selecting Ozil. “He is not right”, he said. “I decided that this the XI and that’s the squad”.
