Mesut Ozil reveals what he thought about Newcastle against Arsenal

Mesut Ozil reveals what he thought about Newcastle against Arsenal

An effort which proved to be the match victor at St James' Park was the World Cup winner's first Premier League strike of 2018, but he claims to take more joy from setting up others than he does hitting the net himself.

"Every competition for me I have respect for and want to do the best for".

Asked if Arsenal would benefit from the former Germany international's decision to retire from global football, Emery said: "It's a new way for him".

After a goalless first half Granit Xhaka scored directly from a corner to put the Gunners 1-0 ahead four minutes after the break. I'm happy but most important we take the three points.

"I think any team would a player like him in their squad".

Ten minutes later Ozil doubled the lead by calmly slotting home after a spell of prolonged pressure in and around the box as Emery's side took charge. Mesut Ozil, in particular, played a key role in orchestrating things not only in attack but also in half-spaces, which helped the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette make darting runs into the opposition's defensive lines.

Brawn showed three different concept designs and said the 2021 cars would incorporate the best features from all of them. Formula One fans have been given a glimpse into what the sport could look like in the near future.

Ozil's selflessness and languid style has often seen him compared with the Dutch maestro who won three league titles during his trophy-laden career in north London, but Ozil wants to be remembered on his own terms.

Emery said: "In the first half, we couldn't control the match like we wanted and we needed that control to impose our ideas, our possession and our positioning". I want players when I change those on the field, and they are not in the first 11, to be angry... with ambition to play and help the team and to stay on the pitch. But we conceded a lot of chances for transition for the counter-attack.

"They (Arsenal) certainly deserved the win, they were much the better team in the second half".

He added: "Most kids only enjoy scoring goals but ever since I was young, I've always loved to give assists".

Arsenal next face Ukrainian side FC Vorskla in the Europa League, with Emery hinting that Bernd Leno could finally get to make his debut in goal on Thursday.

Emery shared those same feelings in his post-match interview after the game, although he admitted his side can improve on the performance.
