Unai Emery challenges Mesut Özil to be more dominant at Arsenal


Unai Emery has told Mesut Ozil that he is entering a new phase in his career and, ahead of his 30th birthday next month, challenged the German playmaker to "do more" and raise his performances.

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 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", Emery said ahead of Saturday's trip to Newcastle.

Here for me it isn't for a lot of the time speaking about what people are telling us.

"Mesut, like other players, works very well here and also working the ties and also together to improve things".

Ozil's retirement from global football came after he made claims of racism from the German football association.

"All players have returned from worldwide duty with their national teams in good health and are available for selection".

Ozil's decision to remove himself from worldwide selection with Germany means he has had time to rest and adapt to Emery's methods.

Therefore this means that Newcastle need to have a plan ready to deal with just one of the players from the get-go as well as a plan B ready to roll out in case both are deployed at the same time.

Following talks over the worldwide break, Emery claims the two are getting on and have a good working relationship. Our process. Then, for his future we didn't speak.
