'Mesut Ozil Needs To Do More!'

Rafael Benitez believes Unai Emery was the ideal candidate to succeed Arsene Wenger.

New Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been tasked with steering the Gunners back into the Premier League's top four this term after they missed out on Champions League qualification for the last two seasons running.

Mesut Ozil started out on the wing at Cardiff and he's enjoyed some rest during the global break after retiring from worldwide duty so I expect him to keep his place ahead of Henrikh Mkhitaryan in attack. Emery has said that he is focused on ensuring that the team is balanced, which may mean that the forwards do not play together.

The Gunners were able to put a hard start behind them as they clinched a 3-1 home win against West Ham United before making the trip to Cardiff City, where they came out on top with a 3-2 victory.

However, Emery insists that the Monreal he is seeing at Arsenal is a "new" one who, in spit of his advanced age, is playing at a very good level. They can play a counter-attacking game and a possession game, because they have enough quality.

Midfield: However, we could see a change in midfield as Lucas Torreira is pushing to make his full debut after making another impressive appearance off the bench at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Benitez, himself, was criticised for his defensive tactics in the recent defeats to Chelsea and Manchester City but hinted he could set his side up differently against Arsenal on Saturday. "I think we need to find a new contract with him to stay with the Arsenal team". We will try to do something that's enough to win the game.

"He is working for the team to help us with his quality". The tactics have to be right'.
