Arsenal manager Unai Emery preparing for 'difficult' Newcastle United test

Man United and Fenerbahce 'Lead Race' To Sign £350000-per-week Arsenal Ace Mesut Ozil

Unai Emery challenges Mesut Özil to be more dominant at Arsenal

Emery, though, is ready to treat Saturday's trip to Newcastle United, Arsenal's first game after the worldwide break, as a clean slate for his players, including Ozil. 'I want to find with him the possibility to do the best, to make decisive passes, to do more near and in the box to score.

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

The Gunners held off a stubborn Cardiff City side in their last outing to claim a 3-2 victory, having previously suffered defeat by the same scoreline to Chelsea in their first away game under Unai Emery.

Mattis declined to confirm whether he has been in consultations with the United Kingdom or France on any military response. We will see them finding a secure place on the border and create their own living areas if the operation starts".

Ozil has become a bit of a conundrum for Emery after the club's highest-paid player got off to a slow start to the season, which was also interrupted by an illness that fuelled rumours of a rift between the two. 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.

"In the process, and firstly we need to win and I think it is very important that in the last match we won", said Emery in his pre-match press conference. I look at him with the focus totally here. But he is feeling like I am feeling. "I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances". "Here he has played both".

Saturday is another step we can do, it will be hard but I want to continue (to show) our personality on the pitch and impose this personality on the opposition and to find the win. Every conversation with him is speaking about us and about our work here every day. "Mesut is in these two positions".
