Mesut Ozil was left with more than just a friendly reminder of Arsenal’s long-standing rivalry with Tottenham Hotspur last night, after being on the receiving end of a less than savoury tackle coming from DeAndre Yedlin. The feisty young Spurs defender, who is a fully-fledged USA international, picked up a booking during his country’s shock win over world champions Germany in the latter’s backyard, and from watching the footage it might be discerned that he knew exactly what he was doing. Ozil’s never been the type to flare up in outrage so the tackle prompted no ill-response, but had it been another player things might have been different. In other news despite the furore surrounding Abou Diaby’s release from Arsenal it appears he might re-sign with the Gunners. The midfielder is in talks over a pay-as-you-play deal, according to sources in France, so could yet feature again for Arsene Wenger’s men.
