17:05 UPDATE: Sherwood critical of Ozil loan

Arsenal has got over Mesut Ozil

"I think he (Unai Emery) needs to get back," Sherwood said on Sky Sports. "I know a lot of people would give him credit for leaving him out because he is not doing it on the pitch and it looks good in the dressing room.

"But it does not look good to the boardroom. The boardroom is going to be saying, 'we're paying him £ 350,000-a-week, you need to get some out of him' because it's going to be very difficult to get rid of him.

"No one is going to pay those wages. Are they going to end up doing loaning him somewhere and contributing £ 200,000 to his wages, which is not a very good business. "
