Unai Emery challenges Mesut Özil to be more dominant at Arsenal

Rafa Benitez must have a plan ready to go if Unai Emery opts to play Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang together as well as another just in case he sticks with keeping them apart.

Ozil did not represent Germany during the worldwide break after he quit the team amid allegations of racism and discrimination within his country's federation after the World Cup.

However, it is highly unlikely Fenerbahce will be able to offer Ozil anything in the region of the £350,000-per-week he earns at Arsenal, making talks of this transfer very doubtful.

Arsenal have been handed an injury blow ahead of their trip to St James' Park to face Newcastle on Saturday after Lucas Torreira was injured on worldwide duty.

Arsenal manager Emery said he enjoyed a "relaxing" three days with Ozil in training after the player's retirement from global football meant he did not depart with the Germany squad last week. "He is working for the team to help us with his quality".

Hurricane Florence weakens slightly as it moves toward US coast: NHC
Wilmington, North Carolina, just north of where Florence appeared headed for shore, grew empty and quiet on Wednesday. But a weather formation known as a high-pressure ridge is parked over the U.S.

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

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.

'Every conversation with me is speaking about us, ' Emery said on Gazidis. Mesut works very well here. "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". I look at him with the focus totally here.

There have been calls for Stephan Lichtsteiner to come in at right-back but I think Hector Bellerin will keep his place and he should once again line-up alongside Nacho Monreal, Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis in the back four.
