Manchester United want to sign Arsenal's Mesut Ozil in January

The Spaniard tactician's team already have 10 different goal scorer this season but Emery wants the likes of Lacazette and Aubameyang to start hitting the goals on regular basis to give the Gunners more balance and freedom.

"I will work with every player and continue our process to create the team as we want".

And he believes the 29-year-old's unselfishness is key for Arsenal's success. We need to win the three points, then think the same for the Europa League.


Ciaran Clark pulled a goal back in stoppage time for Newcastle, but it wasn't enough to prevent them going down to a defeat to match those they had already suffered by the same scoreline against Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester City earlier this season.

But England manager Gareth Southgate would have been equally frustrated watching two global hopefuls at St James' Park, as midfielder Jonjo Shelvey was an unused substitute after his recent injury layoff, while center-back Jamaal Lascelles failed to reappear for the second half after sustaining a thigh problem.

Ozil has received heavy criticism from some sections of the Arsenal fanbase for his questionable commitment to the cause, however, and he is often ineffective in big games.


Ozil told Arsenal's official website: "The fans have backed me ever since I arrived five years ago and because of that, I've been able to play in my preferred style".

Once again, Gunners goalkeeper Petr Cech looked ill at ease with the ball at his feet in his new "sweeper-keeper" role, with questions very much remaining over the Arsenal skipper's ability to play out from the back.

Arsenal made it three consecutive wins in the Premier League after seeing off Newcastle 2-1 at St James' Park.


"We also need to improve and score more goals individually. The second goal finished the match and the result". Of course I was looking at what he was doing, even something as simple as just looking at his shooting technique. All four of his Premier League goals have come from outside the box and, though he is more widely known for his combative attributes, this was a performance in which his creative side shone through, as further evidenced by his role in the second goal. "I am very happy with Matteo and with Lucas", Emery said.
