Unai Emery insists Mesut Ozil relationship remains strong

Unai Emery insists Mesut Ozil relationship remains strong

After losses to champions Manchester City and Chelsea at the start of the league campaign, Arsenal have recovered well to beat West Ham United and Cardiff City.

Emery made five new signings during the summer and has attempted to overhaul Arsenal's playing style and Benitez believes the new-look Gunners side bears the hallmarks of the successful Valencia and Liverpool teams he won silverware with earlier in his career. But Emery is hoping the extra rest and training sessions during the worldwide break - the first since Ozil announced his retirement from Germany - will help the star midfielder find his feet again.

"The players have the habits to play in the global break, in important matches, defending their identity and when one player stops doing that, I think it is also good for them to focus only on their team", said Emery on Thursday. He's working well. He is OK. I want to push them - I want to be demanding. We will try to set a team up that can win with the tactics, and that's what I have to do.

"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", the manager said ahead of their trip to Newcastle United.

Like those, the phone doesn't have a home button; rather, you simply tap to wake it and swipe up to return to the home screen. It also means developers might have a harder time taking advantage of those features if Apple decides to remove any more.

We will see what happens but I feel good.

Unai Emery has admitted that Mesut Ozil still has the capacity to improve and has called on the Arsenal midfielder to become more dominant in matches. "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".

The 29-year-old started against Cardiff City and will be hoping to register his first goal or assist of the season. Have your say in the comments section below.
