EPL: Arsenal provides latest injury updates ahead of Newcastle clash

Unai Emery has called on Mesut Ozil not to shy away from meeting his demands.

With Ozil having retired from global football, Emery has had a prolonged opportunity to work with his highest-profile and best-paid player over this past fortnight and is adamant that they do have a strong relationship.

And speaking ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash with Newcastle, Emery opened up on where his relationship with Ozil now stands. After two weeks, after two months and now, I can say that I am very happy with him because he is 32 years old but I think physically, with his performances with us in matches, he is playing with a very good level. "I have a very good relationship with Mesut and professionally I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances".

Emery admitted Ozil's first global break since his retirement will have been a hard adjustment for the player, but that the pair have been able to spend beneficial time on the training ground together.

Speaking ahead of the trip to St James" Park, Emery said of the pair: "It's the same.

"I just have a feeling it might work this time".

All players on global duty last week returned in good health and are available for selection, Arsenal said.

Mesut Ozil started out on the wing at Cardiff and he's enjoyed some rest during the global break after retiring from worldwide duty so I expect him to keep his place ahead of Henrikh Mkhitaryan in attack.

Defender Nacho Monreal revealed on Wednesday he is in negotiations with Arsenal over a new deal, and Emery said the club "need" to secure the left-back's place at the club.

Meanwhile, Emery has been left guessing whether Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis - the man who identified him as Arsene Wenger's successor - will jump ship to join AC Milan. "We will work, we will help him, give him the possibility on the pitch to be together, to find his qualities for us". I don't know any other news from him'.
