Emery has carried on Arsene Wenger's legacy of implementing his own dietary requirements for players, cracking down on sugary juices in favour of water.

"And if you're Unai Emery, you're trying to work in a way in which you can use the talent of this player and you can use his abilities".

Mesut Ozil has recovered from illness and is available for Arsenal's Premier League trip to Cardiff on Sunday. But with a lot of sugar? Emery said he still isn't completely happy with Arsenal's high pressing game, and called for a more sustained effort against Cardiff.

"When I was young, my father came every day with a fresh orange fruit juice".

"After this, we want to go far in this competition".




"I like it in my life, more of that". Each match is different and each match involves a lot of travel. When I arrived here, I asked only for that from the cook.

"First it's three teams and we'll have the recipe for them", said Emery, who lifted the Europa League title three times at Sevilla. "They prefer their orange fresh".

Half-way through last season, before the playmaker renewed his contract with Arsenal, Emery personally tried to convince Ozil to sign for his former club Paris Saint-Germain by outlining his exact tactical plans to him in a face-to-face meeting.

It will be interesting to see if he starts amid rumours he was due to be dropped against West Ham but I wouldn't be surprised to see him played on the right - just as he was against Man City on the opening weekend.
