Arsene Wenger insists that Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere can play in the same midfield.
Critics claim that the midfield pair are too similar.
“Jack is more comfortable in deeper positions, and Ozil more in a higher position. That’s why I don’t think they conflict,” said Wenger.
“I didn’t always think that, but looking at Jack over the years now, he likes to come deep to take the ball and make a difference, then give and go again. Ozil is more behind the striker, higher up the field.”
