Unai Emery has got to get ‘genius’ Mesut Ozil in the Arsenal team, says Glen Johnson

Mesut Ozil has not appeared for Arsenal yet this season, but Glen Johnson believes Gunners boss Unai Emery needs to change that situation as soon as possible.

The German was out of action due to security reasons at the start of the campaign, then was struggling with illness, but has since not been selected despite returning to fitness.

The 30-year-old was an unused substitute in the north London derby against Tottenham, Arsenal’s last fixture, and will be hoping for a return to action this weekend away at Watford.
