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

Merson hails Redknapp tactical knowledge

"I would have loved to be able to continue to play, but we can not do anything about that", the Frenchman lamented a 2-0 home win over Brighton & Hove Albion on Oct 1 before the break.

The 24-year-old told the club's official website: "It is really a lot of fun to work alongside a manager like Arsene Wenger".

The Evening Standard claim he said:"Of course, we would be happy to keep them, but I think it is important not to talk about the contracts".

Arsenal's preparations for a return to Premier League action following the worldwide break are once again dominated by uncertainty over the futures of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

The 10-point haul from four games, with the only ones dropped at champions Chelsea, has lifted the Gunners up to fifth in the table, level with the Blues, who now occupy the final Champions League spot, and six points behind league leaders Manchester City.

Ozil has recovered from his knee injury and is expected to feature at Vicarage Road on Saturday. "Yesterday afternoon I watched the whole Brazil v Chile game to see how hard the game was".

The Frenchman is now managing a defensive injury crisis following the global break.

The French global hasn't played since our win over West Brom last month and has been training alone this week but he will be passed fit to face Watford as long as he comes through a fitness test tomorrow.

But his absence will soon be offset by the return of Laurent Koscielny, who is closing on a comeback from an Achilles injury.

"I will have to speak to him", said the Arsenal manager, whose side are fifth in the table after a good recent run of results.

I haven't seen everybody, because some players are coming back today and some are in tomorrow, like Alexis.

Wenger and Merson's war of words stems from comments the latter made about the Gunners in 2014 when he described them as playing like an under-12 team after throwing away a three-goal lead against Anderlecht. He didn't play in the first game, and we lost him in the second game against Azerbaijan at home. "I don't see Jack being fully fit and not going to the World Cup".
