Published Add your comment

Arsenal fans, good morning!

There are few things in life more difficult to tackle than a Monday at the beginning of a long working week, but you can take comfort in the fact that there’s plenty of interesting football news doing the rounds.

It’s our job to siphon through that news and put it all in one easy-on-the-eye round-up. Read on below for all the latest.

Ozil upset

Arsenal may have recorded a smart victory over Leicester City at the weekend, but one man who was left unhappy after the result was Mesut Ozil.

Arsene Wenger revealed after the game that the Germany star was ‘‘really upset’ at not having found the back of the net during the encounter.

Alexis Sanchez struck three, with Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott adding the others, but Ozil’s search for his first Premier League goal of the season continues.

“It was classy and the little frustration I have today is that he could not score a goal or the chance he had,” Wenger told Arsenal's official website.

“He is really upset because he know he needs a goal as well but the ball he gave to Alexis was fantastic.”

Gibbs backs the Ox

Meanwhile, Kieran Gibbs has looked to boost the confidence of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, describing his teammate as being in the best shape of his life.

The Ox missed large portions of last term through injury, but Gibbs has said the England international can be a vital part of Arsene Wenger’s plans now that he’s fighting fit.

Petit's regret

Elsewhere, it emerged over the weekend that former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit regrets not having joined Manchester United when he left Highbury in 2000.

The Frenchman opted to sign for Barcelona after departing Arsene Wenger’s set-up but revealed that it had been a mistake not to join the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and David Beckham at Old Trafford.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, Emmanuel.
