Arsenal boss Unai Emery calls for improvement from Mesut Ozil

Nacho Monreal deserves to extend his stay at Arsenal beyond this season, according to boss Unai Emery.

The 3-2 win at the Cardiff City Stadium before the worldwide break was important as it would have been a blow to drop points in that game but Alexandre Lacazette came to our rescue with a lovely victor to bag all three points.

Speaking ahead of Arsenal's trip to Newcastle United this weekend, Emery played down talk of a dispute with the player and insisted that he still has more to offer.

The Spaniard has been discussing his plans for the future, with Arsenal ready to reward him with a new and improved contract at the club. But he is feeling like I am feeling.

We have no fresh injury concerns to worry about as all our players returned unscathed from global duty but Laurent Koscielny is still out as he continues to work his way back from Achilles surgery. "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".

Below is how we think Newcastle could line up this weekend, with three changes to the side that were beaten at the Etihad Stadium by Manchester City.

"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. Mesut, I look at him with the focus totally here".

"After six years here, I came and I know him as a new Nacho Monreal".

@SimonBrotherton: Newcastle won the last meeting between the sides 2-1 at St James' Park in April, and the way Arsenal have started the season, you'd think the Magpies are likely to have some chances here.
