Arsenal boss Emery: I play Ozil in his preferred position

Germany retirement can help Ozil – Emery

Alexandre Lacazette will likely be the man in focus for Arsenal when they face Newcastle United. Here's the lowdown on what could turn out to be a fraught and emotionally charged game.

Alex Iwobi is also in line for a return after missing that win through illness.

"In his career Mesut played like a 10 and on the right, coming inside with his quality", Emery said.

Benitez might not be able to star striker Salomon Rondon and right back DeAndre Yedlin following the pair's late return from worldwide action playing for their respective national sides. Matt Ritchie and Jonjo Shelvey have both returned to full training ahead of the Arsenal clash having been sidelined so far with thigh and knee injuries respectively.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he's playing Mesut Ozil in his favoured position.

"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".

The manager added: "But he is feeling like I am feeling".

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.

"And also, we need in the balance of players, when the team needs to work in the pitch to help the team to find the win, to stay with the performance". He could feel different [after quitting Germany] but every day with us I look at him and he looks well and happy, working with our demands.

"He had a relaxing three days off at the weekend".

'I'm sure lots of top clubs are monitoring the situation and are ready to poach him.

Benitez too has a full-strength squad at his disposal for the Arsenal game and will be hoping his side secure all three points to get their first win of the season as well as jump out of the 18th position on the table they now occupy. The tactics have to be right.

"Last year, we had some games in a row (when) we weren't winning, but we were close".

"They won't create a million chances against the Gunners and Arsenal will create plenty". Things like that can happen in every game, and that's why football is so hard. I think it's important for strikers to score goals for their confidence. "This time, with the fans behind us, hopefully we can given them something to support us for the 90 minutes".
