"The team needed to feel solid".

"What are Arsenal doing appointing a manager who isn't bigger than his players?". Ozil and Arteta have both played together at Arsenal itself.

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has opened up on the team talk given by newly-appointed Gunners boss Mikel Arteta, on the back of the club's stalemate with Everton at the weekend.

"And when you, little by little, have to build a team that is aggressive, intense, as well as structured for good pressure, we also had to find a space for Mesut".

"To do so I had to find the right connections between players, the right tactics".

"But there were times when I had to leave one of them out of the XI".

"That's my decision. I won't make the decisions again, but that's what I think".
