Arsenal's Lucas Torreira to miss clash with Newcastle

"I just have a feeling it might work this time".

Granit Xhaka continues to split opinion among the fans as while he's so important to our build-up play, he is a liability when we're not in possession.

Questionable or quirk, the fact is Özil has never travelled to Newcastle in Arsenal colours since joining in 2013.

His appetite for away matches does come under scrutiny but Emery is keen to keep his group tight and ambitious. I want to push them - I want to be demanding.

Two defeats and eight goals conceded in the opening four games for Arsenal have left them already playing catch-up in pursuit of a top-four finish, however, they did manage to pick up back-to-back wins against West Ham and Cardiff City before the worldwide break.


He suggested the 29-year-old playmaker had been in a positive frame of mind during the worldwide break, even though it was unusual to be outside that habit of representing his country.

"He had a relaxing three days off at the weekend".

"Mesut, like other players, works very well here and [is] also working. together to improve things".

Torreira picked up a minor calf issue while away with Uruguay last week but he's trained fully since returning to Arsenal and is available for selection so I wouldn't be surprised to see him start against Newcastle this weekend.

'I can say that I am very happy with him because he is 32 years old but I think physically, with his performances with us in matches, he is playing with a very good level.
