Unai Emery says there is more to come from Mesut Ozil

Mesut Ozil in action against Newcastle last season

Unai Emery is not planning a wholesale rotation of players between the Premier League and Europa League, a competition which he suggested could soon become Arsenal's No1 priority this season.

After a goalless first 45 minutes, Granit Xhaka broke the deadlock shortly after the break with a sumptuous free-kick.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has challenged Mesut Ozil to rediscover his best form on a sustained basis after seeing him fire the Gunners to Premier League victory at Newcastle.

Xhaka was heavily involved again as Ozil doubled the lead nine minutes later.

Newcastle, which is still looking for a first win, kept going until the end and scored a consolation as Clark headed in a stoppage-time goal.

However, Arsenal were able to cope with the late blip to get their third successive win on the board, moving level on points with North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Etienne, with Thomas Tuchel resting the former while the latter served a ban for a red card he received before the global break. PSG cruised past Saint Etienne anyway, winning 4-0 at the Parc des Princes.

They remain in the relegation zone having picked up just one point from their opening five games.

"I think Manchester United and Chelsea will both battle it out to sign him if they feel he is seriously considering leaving Arsenal".

Ozil scored in Arsenal's win over the Magpies at St. James' Park as the Gunners gradually look to build some momentum under new manager Emery this season.

"We are happy with this victory and we are improving but we also need to continue working individually and collectively to improve more things".

Newcastle had the better of the first half but could not test keeper Petr Cech often enough to get themselves in front, and they were made to pay within four minutes of the restart when Xhaka curled home a fine free-kick.

"I am very happy to play for Arsenal and especially for the new coach". He said, "We score and we are happy, even the players that don't play, we are all team". But maybe in the second half we needed a little more balance on the pitch with the positioning.
