Unai Emery Gives Update On Ozil and Kolasinac


Arsenal manager Unai Emery has provided an update on two of his players ahead of the Premier League clash with Burnley.

Two Arsenal players namely Sead Kolasinac and Mesut Ozil missed last weekend’s league game at Newcastle United due to security reasons.

Kolasinac and Ozil were missing in action as Arsenal recorded a 1-0 win over the Magpies in what was their Premier League opener.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was responsible for the only goal of the game off an assist from Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery spoke about Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac during his pre-match press conference on Thursday morning ahead of the Burnley game on Saturday lunchtime.

According to him, the two players are back in training and the Spanish tactician is hopeful that they would be involved in the Gunners squad for the clash with the Clarets.

Arsenal can go to the top of the table temporarily with a win over the Clarets at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners beat Burnley 3-1 in the corresponding fixture from last season.

Arsenal should also have star striker Alexandre Lacazette back in the starting XI for the Burnley game having recovered fully from the ankle injury the Frenchman sustained at the Emirates Cup.
