Former Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp has warned Arsenal manager Unai Emery that he can’t afford to let Mesut Ozil leave the club if he’s not able to replace him.

The Gunners has lost 1-0 to London rivals West Ham United on Saturday afternoon as they looked dormant going forward.

Strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have really shown the hunger of the goal but Emery’s midfield struggled to create chances.

Emery has decided to drop Ozil for the London derby clash. But Redknapp has urged Emery to look for a good replacement of the German playmaker if he decides to drop him.

“Unai Emery may have his issues with Mesut Ozil,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.

“But without him, who supplies the creativity in this Arsenal team?”

“Looking at both matchday squads on Saturday, there was little to separate Arsenal and West Ham.”

“Until Aaron Ramsey — a player whose days are numbered at the club — came off the bench, Arsenal lacked a creative spark.”

“This defeat came after a week in which Emery admitted he can only bring in players on loan.”

“If Arsenal are not going to invest, they simply cannot afford to leave out Ozil.”

“Emery wants him to work harder without the ball, but in Ozil’s absence Arsenal looked toothless in possession.”

Arsenal are back in the Premier League clash on Saturday evening when they take on London rivals Chelsea at the Emirates.
