Arsenal boss Arteta coy over Ozil, Guendouzi futures

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta explained the absences of Mesut Ozil an Matteo Guendouzi after their FA Cup triumph over Chelsea.

Arteta was asked about the absence of both Ozil and midfielder Guendouzi from his squad after the match.

"We don't have Matteo here and Mesut but they deserve credit as they played their part," he said.

He was then pressed on just why they were absent but simply replied: "Let's enjoy the moment."

Arteta continued: "We played probably the best 30 minutes after since I arrived. I am so proud to represent these players and this club.

"It is a double reward for us. It is really important for this club in every way to be in Europe. We all did it so I am so happy."
