Arsenal boss Emery addresses Ozil rift; Man City groundsman claim

Arsenal boss Emery addresses Ozil rift; Man City groundsman claim

Two defeats and eight goals conceded in the opening four games for Arsenal have left them already playing catch-up in pursuit of a top-four finish, however, they did manage to pick up back-to-back wins against West Ham and Cardiff City before the global break. The reason we are working is to prepare each match with our players, to have the possibility to arrive in Newcastle in the best condition for every player.

Rafa Benitez explains why Newcastle's Premier League stats aren't "real" - yetAnd after securing their first away win of the season at the Cardiff City Stadium two weeks ago, Emery is targeting a victory against Newcastle but insists it will be a hard.

"I think we need to find a new contract with him to stay with the Arsenal team". He's working well. He is OK. He can improve, he can do more.

"The best managers are those who work out quickly what they want and the period for assessment is now over".

Pogba, who has been strongly linked with an exit from Manchester United , features on a star-studded list of midfielders . Both he and Gianluigi Buffon have been on each list of 55 since its inception in 2004/05.

Torreira picked up a minor calf issue while away with Uruguay last week but he's trained fully since returning to Arsenal and is available for selection so I wouldn't be surprised to see him start against Newcastle this weekend. "In this process, we will work, we will help him, give him the possibility on the pitch to be together, to find his qualities for us".

Arsenal manager Emery said he enjoyed a "relaxing" three days with Ozil in training after the player's retirement from worldwide football meant he did not depart with the Germany squad last week.

"In his career Mesut played like a 10 and on the right, coming inside with his quality", Emery added. "Here he has played both". He is very convinced about that in my conversations with him about it. "Mesut is in these two positions".
