‘The team is evolving, you can see the level they are achieving’: Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta offers a blunt assessment on why Mesut Ozil’s exile continued in Carabao Cup win over Leicester

  • Mikel Arteta suggested his Arsenal side is evolving without attacker Mesut Ozil 
  • The Gunners made seven changes at the King Power Stadium in 2-0 victory 
  • Ozil has not been involved at all since Project Restart after starting every match

Mikel Arteta suggested his Arsenal side is evolving without Mesut Ozil as the club’s highest-paid player again missed out on the squad for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup win at Leicester.

The Gunners made seven changes at the King Power Stadium as a Christian Fuchs own goal and late Eddie Nketiah tap-in sealed a 2-0 victory for the visitors.

Despite those alterations there was still no room in the matchday squad for either Ozil or Matteo Guendouzi, who have yet to kick a ball this season.
