Arsenal boss Wenger explains starting Ozil on bench

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger explained not starting Mesut Ozil for defeat at Stoke City.

Ozil did catch the eye in the second-half.

"No he was fit to start. He has played many many games. He came on at the right moment I think. But we just conceded a goal. When we started to pin them back on that long ball we were dominating. We had some dangerous situations even if we didn't have any clear-cut chances but we conceded that penalty," said Wenger.
