EPL: Arsenal provides latest injury updates ahead of Newcastle clash

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.

Ozil has made three appearances for the London outfit so far this season, but is yet to score a goal or register an assist.

Emery admitted Ozil's first worldwide 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.

Arsenal has provided injury update on some of their players ahead of their Premier League clash with Newcastle United on Saturday.


After six years here, I came and I know him as a new Nacho Monreal, ' Emery told reporters on Thursday. But he is feeling like I am feeling.

'The reason is that I am very happy with the last two victories in the Premier League and also with the performances and I want to push every player to be okay to help the team if for one minute, 30 minutes or half time or 90 minutes'.

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

Emery, however, has called for focus from his men and has backed Arsenal to continue to impose their "personality" on matches. "Here he has played both". I usually give players the position they feel the best.
