Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger previews Stoke, says the rest will have done Özil good
Arsene Wenger sat down with the club’s official channel to preview Stoke and give some general updates on his players.
Asked about the decision to leave Özil out of the squad altogether last week, Wenger played down the importance of it, saying that sometimes players simply need a rest, nothing more, and that Ozil will come back the better for it.
Wenger also talks of his desire to see his team produce more regular fast starts as they did last week, while also hailing Mathieu Flamini’s winning attitude.
