Arsenal were in good form once again in Europe as they beat Standard Liege 4-0 on Thursday.
The goals were scored by Gabriel Martinelli – twice – Joe Willock and Dani Ceballos as the Gunners enjoyed a comfortable night at the Emirates Stadium.
It was the perfect opportunity for Unai Emery to play some of his fringe players, such as Shkodran Mustafi, Rob Holding and Emiliano Martinez. However, there was one notable exception from the squad.

The former Sevilla boss decided not to include Mesut Ozil in the side, saying that other players “deserved” it more.
It is another blow to the former Germany international, who has once again recently been linked with a move away from north London.
It appears as though the Arsenal supporters were very disappointed with Emery’s comments in particular.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Özil ended Arsenal’s trophy drought and started a new run of success. Emery had 5 chances to restore Arsenal to the Champions League, and blew them all.
And Emery’s talking about who deserves things?
Emery deserves to be fired. Today. Good ebening. https://t.co/p1huIaCZXk

Ozil doesn’t deserve to be part of the squad at least, but Xhaka deserves to be captain
Absolutely no logic, i don’t trust him on Arsenal future, absolutely not
Shame on Emery and shame on those who support his chaos

Absolute clown I’m afraid.
Ozil isn’t perfect.
But Emery is tying himself in knots over this and it’s one less problem he could have.
Anyhow, leaving that aside, great performance from some of the youngsters.
