Derby: Wenger Urged to drop Disgruntled Sanchez, Ozil


Ex-Gunner, Charlie Nicholas has urged Arsenal’s Manager, Arsene Wenger to drop disgruntled Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez for the north London derby, which will see the Emirate welcome Spurs.
The stars have less than seven months left on their contract and are not willing to sign a renewal, following perceived dissatisfaction with the achievement of the team last season.
Nicholas argues that Wenger should instead use the side which held Chelsea to a goalless draw. Wenger left both Ozil and Sanchez on the bench during their clash at Stamford Bridge.
“If Arsenal are serious about winning these big games, I would go with Alexandre Lacazette and Danny Welbeck and leave Ozil out and Sanchez out,” Nicholas told SkySports.
“Are they two of our best players? Of course they are, but they don’t do enough in these big games.

“Welbeck isn’t as talented but what you’ve got to do against a back three is move them about to create chances, while Lacazette is our best finisher and sulky Sanchez doesn’t like playing out wide.”
