Arsenal manager Unai Emery says playmaker Mesut Ozil is needed at the club and would be part of their squad to face Burnley in the Premier League Saturday. Ozil, who joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in 2013 for a then-record 42 million pounds ($53 million), has been left out of the side regularly in the last two months, at first due to a back sprain and then -- according to Emery -- because of the physicality of some opponents.The 30-year-old was not in the squad for the 2-0 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup quarterfinals Wednesday when Emery repeatedly refused to say that he wanted to hold on to the German playmaker when questioned about his future.
