“It’s easier to produce in big games if you’re in a good team.
“I’ve always said would Ozil be better playing ahead of [Nemanja] Matic and [N’Golo] Kante or [Mousa] Dembele and [Victor] Wanyama compared to Ramsey and Xhaka.
“It’s not a criticism of Ramsey or Xhaka because they’re attacking midfielders to me who are creative.” (Sky Sports)
Mertesacker on trying to beat Chelsea
“We have certainly found our rhythm against Chelsea at Wembley, but there’s different circumstances at Stamford Bridge.
“To make sure we keep the rhythm from Wembley, the way we played them, the way we prepared those games, which really made the difference is really down to us. Confidence-wise, we should be on top of that.
“It is a different picture and a different game. They have habits in their game, though, and we need to read that well. That is what we did, especially twice at Wembley in the past few months.” (Independent)
