Arsenal news: Unai Emery reveals the truth behind relationship with Mesut Ozil

Arsenal Boss Keen To Scupper Barcelona's Interest In Gunners Star

Ozil has started all but one of Unai Emery's Premier League matches and featured in a variety of different positions but what does the Spaniard believe is his player's best?

"For Liverpool it was very important because they lost in the Premier League the top four, and they needed it to go into the Champions League".

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.

We will see what happens but I feel good. He can improve, he can do more.

"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".

"We are continuing our process with our positive things and our work".

"He had a relaxing three days off at the weekend".

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

The manager added: "Saturday is another step we can do, it will be hard but I want to continue [to show] our personality on the pitch and impose this personality on the opposition and to find the win". We need to win the three points, then think the same for the Europa League. Emery has said that he is focused on ensuring that the team is balanced, which may mean that the forwards do not play together.

"Last year, we had some games in a row (when) we weren't winning, but we were close". Things like that can happen in every game, and that's why football is so hard.

You never know because your body, sometimes you start with some problems, some injuries and you can't continue giving 100 per cent.
