Rafa Benitez signals change in tactics for Newcastle's home game against Arsenal

Germany retirement can help Ozil – Emery

Germany retirement can help Ozil – Emery

He is very convinced about that in my conversations with him about it.

"He is working for the team to help us with his quality".

This is a game that very much could go either way, Newcastle needing to get back to the defensive levels of last season AND they need to start finding those vital individuals who can prove to be match winners.

Unai Emery insists he has a "good relationship" with Mesut Ozil, contrary to reports of a bust-up between the Arsenal pair.

"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", the manager said ahead of their trip to Newcastle United.

Rafael Benitez, on the other hand, will be hoping his squad could emulate their performance from the last time these two teams met at St. James' Park as the Gunners were defeated 2-1.

Chief executive Ivan Gazidis' future looks less certain, though, with AC Milan having re-opened negotiations with him. The tactics have to be right.

The manager added: "Saturday is another step we can do, it will be hard but I want to continue [to show] our personality on the pitch and impose this personality on the opposition and to find the win".

Benitez too has a full-strength squad at his disposal for the Arsenal game and will be hoping his side secure all three points to get their first win of the season as well as jump out of the 18th position on the table they now occupy. Things like that can happen in every game, and that's why football is so hard.

"This is the moment to say to you that I have a good relationship with Mesut and I didn't say it to the groundsman not to water on the pitch, it's not true".

"With the fans pushing and supporting, we have a chance (against Arsenal) - for sure".

Benitez on Newcastle's confidence: "Last year, we had some games in a row [when] we weren't winning, but we were close".
