Injured Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira unlikely to play vs Newcastle United

David O'Leary says Unai Emery has his work cut out this season at Arsenal

David O'Leary says Unai Emery has his work cut out this season at Arsenal

Unai Emery has told Mesut Ozil that he is entering a new phase in his career and, ahead of his 30th birthday next month, challenged the German playmaker to "do more" and raise his performances.

Ozil ended his worldwide career after the World Cup, citing "racism and disrespect" over his Turkish roots.

And he made it clear he wants to see more from Ozil going forward.

"[We get on] very well", Emery said.

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira is a major injury doubt for his side's Premier League clash against Newcastle United this weekend after picking up an injury on worldwide duty, according to The Sun. "He is working for the team to help us with his quality".

If the storm makes landfall as a Category 2, these winds will be damaging, sustained at up to 160km/h or so with higher gusts. Usually when a storm approaches the coast, forecasters can tell with ever-increasing accuracy who will get walloped.

Emery has insisted that his summer signing is close to a start but has failed to specify a date for Gunners' fans.

"I just have a feeling it might work this time". "I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances". He can improve, he can do more. "They played on Tuesday, it is Xhaka, Lichtsteiner, Welbeck and Sokratis and I want and I hope that they hope that they come back well and prepare for the match in Newcastle". I look at him with the focus totally here. The 53-year-old was behind the appointment of Emery and also brought in Raul Sanllehi as head of football relations and Sven Mislintat as head of recruitment.

Following talks over the worldwide break, Emery claims the two are getting on and have a good working relationship.

'Every conversation with me is speaking about us, ' Emery said on Gazidis.

"We are continuing our process with our positive things and our work". I don't know any other news from him'.
