Emery’s reign as Arsenal manager has been dogged by his willingness to drop Ozil, considered by many to be Arsenal’s best player, and also the team’s highest paid player. Before Arsenal’s two recent victory’s, Emery had been under immence pressure, which peaked after the team lost away to BATE in the Europa league, to either find a suitable style for the team, or re-instate the German back into the side. He did so in arsenal’s win over Hudderfield, but now look to have resorted back to form.
