'Ozil Needs To Do More!'

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has once again stressed that Mesut Ozil needs to start contributing more to the team, and he is not the only player who needs to step up.

The former Germany international missed Arsenal's 3-1 Premier League win over London rivals West Ham United last month but returned to the team for the 3-2 victory over Cardiff City.

The Gunners' first game after the international break is against Newcastle United, and Emery feels it's an opportunity for Ozil and many others to get a fresh start.

"For me, it is a new moment, for us and for every player," Emery said at a news conference, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"The reason we are working is to prepare each match with our players to have the possibility to arrive in Newcastle in the best condition for every player.

"That's the same for Mesut. He's working well. He is OK. I want to push them, I want to be demanding to prepare this match – Mesut the same.

"I want to find with him the possibility to do the best, to make decisive passes, to do more near and in the box to score. Also, I think he is working for the team to help us with his quality.

"But he is feeling like I am feeling. He can improve, he can do more. 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."

Ozil has made three appearances for the London outfit so far this season, but is yet to score a goal or register an assist.

Do you think we will see a different side to the German's game now that he has had a few more weeks of training under Emery? Have your say in the comments section below.
