Emery squashes Arsenal's fruit drink cravings



There had been reports that Ozil had fallen out with boss Unai Emery ahead of facing West Ham, although the Spaniard insisted the player's absence was due to sickness and dismissed talk of a bust-up.

Instead, the Arsenal manager wants the team to follow his lead and drink a healthier alternative.

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has told his players to forget about their recent woeful Premier League away form and aim to begin a "new future".

Playing in their first European campaign in half a century, Burnley ran out of juice Thursday as they bowed out in their Europa League qualifier against Olympiakos while Rangers and Celtic both advanced. But with a lot of sugar?

The Uruguay global midfielder has impressed after coming on as a substitute in all three of the Gunners opening Premier League fixtures, with many Arsenal fans demanding that he be given a starting role in Emery's side.

Emery also paid tribute to Warnock and said: "I understand Mr Warnock is very competitive and I like this spirit". Then after this game I analysed it with the players. "They prefer their orange juice fresh".

But, with the player's cold now over, Emery confirmed Ozil is back in contention to line-up at Cardiff on Sunday.

Arsenal welcome Mesut Ozil back in to the squad after he missed the win over West Ham through illness but he trained all last week and should return to the starting eleven tomorrow.

It was claimed Ozil had stormed out of a training session when Emery urged him to try harder to adapt to his high-tempo pressing game. We need to push, we need to have ambition, we need to have desire to improve every day. Arsenal's reliance on that sort of play doesn't give Aubameyang an opportunity to utilise his speed and get in behind with the 29-year-old having to position him self for a tap-in or a lay-off like any other Arsenal player waiting in the box. If he continues to get good chances, he'll start scoring soon enough and Arsenal's attack will be fully on track.

The Gunners have been drawn with Sporting Lisbon, Ukrainian side Vorskla and Azeri champions Qarabag in Group E. Though shaky at times, the ex- Chelsea legend has done a fine job so far with crucial saves even though he leaked in 6 goals in the first three games. "It's a tough draw but an exciting one in a competition we want to do well in".

"For some, the travel is very long but it's like that".
