Newcastle vs Arsenal: Unai Emery reveals what he expects from Gunners

Mesut Ozil is *finally* set to play at Newcastle

Mesut Ozil is *finally* set to play at Newcastle

The Gunners have conceded eight goals in four matches so far and were pegged back twice by newly promoted Cardiff last time out before winning 3-2.

Ozil could play at St James' Park for the first time in his Arsenal career, having missed his side's last three trips to Tyneside.

So it's no wonder that there is a protest against Mike Ashley planned for before today's game so the fans can voice their displeasure.

Alex Iwobi is also in line for a return after missing that win through illness. Alexandre Lacazette keeps his place up front after scoring the victor at Cardiff with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang out on the wing.

Emery has said that he is focused on ensuring that the team is balanced, which may mean that the forwards do not play together.

Newcastle United forward Salomon Rondon and defender DeAndre Yedlin could be rested after their late return from global duty.

The 29-year-old winger is back in contention after missing the defeat to Manchester City before the global break, while central midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has also trained ahead of a return.

Henry Cavill Issues Strange Response to Superman News
It served to neither confirm or deny the rumours that he's stepping out of the spandex, and has, frankly, confounded fans. Rumors had posited that Cavill's Superman was to potentially be a lynchpin to the DCEU the same way Samuel L.

Unai Emery insists he has a "good relationship" with Mesut Ozil, contrary to reports of a bust-up between the Arsenal pair. 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 think we need to find a new contract with him to stay with the Arsenal team".

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

"After six years here, I came and I know him as a new Nacho Monreal. He is OK. I want to push them, I want to be demanding to prepare this match - Mesut the same".

Rafa Benitez on his tactics against Arsenal: "Every game is different. We won", Emery said. The tactics have to be right.

The Scotland global netted a winning goal at home to the Gunners last season in a 2-1 win and would love a repeat at the weekend. We were missing a chance, and then maybe they would score.
