Arsenal 'very happy' with Emery, says MD, Football News & Top Stories

Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac

Go behind the scenes at Vicarage Road as Watford came from behind to claim a 2-2 draw with Unai Emery's Arsenal.

Last year's finalists Arsenal return to the Europa League this Thursday and face a stern test, away to German side Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Gunners have enjoyed a solid start to the 2019-20 season, winning two, drawing two and losing one of their first five matches. "He played on Sunday now my focus is on tomorrow, and to decide my first XI, I decided who are the best players for tomorrow and decided also the players not in the squad, who are Sokratis and Mesut".

"Also how we can play the long ball and make some actions in the attacking third, to get the ball, to score and to win the match". Now he is going to be helping us. We have a very important match ahead here in Frankfurt. 'We think he is doing an excellent job, so we are very happy'.

Meanwhile, Mesut Ozil has not travelled with the squad, and Emery confirmed he was rested for the Europa League opener.

Their last outing, however, prompted cause for concern from Arsenal fans as they carelessly threw away a two-goal lead away to Watford.


Speaking more about his decision to omit Ozil - who retired from worldwide football with Germany in 2018 - Emery added: "Really the first match he played on Sunday, he played well and was good physically".

"The first match he played on Sunday he played good with his capacity and skills, his first minutes for us was good".

"When we appointed Unai, the team that worked on that looked at lots of different attributes that we felt we want to have in our head coach".

This stance could see the Arsenal boss giving some much needed chances to some of Arsenal's budding youngsters including the likes of Emile Smith Rowe, Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson.

"We try to find a solution. the players that have gone on loan and the players we sold create a relatively significant wage savings or income that help offset some of the investments we made". We did that on Sunday in the first half, but in the second half we didn't. "Tomorrow is a new challenge in terms of how we're improving".
