North London outfit Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been given reasons why he must play German international Mesut Ozil in their Europa League second leg clash against Napoli later on Thursday.
The Gunners team had secured a 2-0 advantage in the first leg at the Emirates Stadium but there are suggestions that they will have a real test when they play at Naples because Napoli will be waiting to give them a real test.
Paul Merson has therefore warned manager Unai Emery that the World Cup winner must be in the team, especially ahead of Armenian midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan because he is still a match winner.
Mesut Ozil was earlier criticised for poor performance as he was also left out of the team for a couple of games but Paul Merson states that he is still a better pick than Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
He stressed that the former Real Madrid star has got the ability to u pick the Napoli defence and that is what is needed because of the need for the Gunners to score a goal in the game.
Paul Merson, therefore, tipped Arsenal to secure a win in the game, adding that they will not be good enough for the semi-finals if they can not take advantage of the 2 goals lead.
