Unai Emery drops Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hint

Unai Emery drops Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hint

Arsenal boss Unai Emery insists he and Mesut Ozil get along.

And with speculation over the state of Emery's relationship with Ozil continuing, the Spaniard has again called for the 29-year-old to step up his performance levels.

Arsenal, after losing their opening two fixtures of the Premier League season, appear to have found their feet under Emery.

"I think we need to find a new contract with him to stay with the Arsenal team". "I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances".

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

All players on global duty last week returned in good health and are available for selection, Arsenal said. But Emery is hoping the extra rest and training sessions during the global break - the first since Ozil announced his retirement from Germany - will help the star midfielder find his feet again. I usually give players the position they feel the best.

Wright To Play During Mets’ Final Homestand
The Mets said that they plan to activate Wright when they return to Citi Field on September 25 against Atlanta. During a press conference on Thursday, Wright announced that it will likely be the last series of his career.

"Mesut, like other players, works very well here and [is] also working. together to improve things".

Torreira picked up a minor calf issue while away with Uruguay last week but he's trained fully since returning to Arsenal and is available for selection so I wouldn't be surprised to see him start against Newcastle this weekend.

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.

Emery insists he has had no talks about Gazidis leaving.

"Every conversation with him is speaking about us and about our work here every day", he said.

"I knew Nacho in Spain when he was playing in Osasuna and in Malaga".
