Paul Merson claims Harry Redknapp would have led Arsenal to the title

Merson hails Redknapp tactical knowledge

Jack Wilshere is yet to play a minute of Premier League football and has lost his place in the England squad, but Wenger believes the midfielder is on course to go to next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

As things stand, they will be able to leave the Emirates Stadium for free, meaning January will be Arsenal's last opportunity to cash in on their two most high-profile players.

"The season is young but I am happy with how I've developed and how I have started".

Wenger confirmed in his press conference on Thursday morning that Mustafi would miss around 4-6 weeks, which wasn't as bad as first feared, but still means that it is unlikely that he will feature in any of Arsenal's games before the next global break.

Key duo, Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac picked up knocks whilst away in the last week, with Mustafi picking up what seemed a serious muscular injury during Germany's game against Azerbaijan.

Ozil has recovered from his knee injury and is expected to feature at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

But Sanchez is due to be assessed after playing in Chile's 3-0 loss to Brazil on Wednesday, which ended their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup. Also throw in to the mix that Mertesacker is in his final year of football before retiring at the end of the season, so it would be very demanding both physically and mentally on the German to play all three of these upcoming games.

Merson feels that Ozil should be dropped against Watford regardless if he is fit or not. At the moment, he's not available.

'Tactically, he's one of the best I've worked with. I thought 'what have I done coming here - this is going to be embarrassing'.

"I tried to text Paul this morning, but he was busy at work". He didn't play in the first game, and we lost him in the second game against Azerbaijan at home.

Yes, I have. I think about sorting out the problem, but overall I will completely decide what I do tomorrow because Koscielny will have a test then. I have spoken to him and he is over the moon.
