Emery, though, is ready to treat Saturday's trip to Newcastle United, Arsenal's first game after the worldwide break, as a clean slate for his players, including Ozil.

"I want to find with him the possibility to do the best, to make decisive passes, to do more near and in the box to score", the manager said.

However, Emery insists that the Monreal he is seeing at Arsenal is a "new" one who, in spit of his advanced age, is playing at a very good level.

Two defeats and eight goals conceded in the opening four games for Arsenal have left them already playing catch-up in pursuit of a top-four finish, however, they did manage to pick up back-to-back wins against West Ham and Cardiff City before the worldwide break. He can improve, he can do more.

As per Goal, he told reporters: "He really needs at least this season to progress, see where we go to".

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. "I want to be demanding to prepare for this match - Mesut the same".

Firstly we need to win and I think it is very important that in the last match we won. "I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances". In this process, we will work, we will help him, give him the possibility on the pitch to be together, to find his qualities for us.

Ozil has looked slightly out of place when Emery has deployed him on the right wing rather his normal central role as a No. 10, but Emery reiterated that the German is happy switching between the two. He is very convinced about that in my conversations with him about it.
