I'm not bothered if Ozil plays - Cardiff boss Warnock

Unai Emery has described Mesut Ozil as a "very important player" for Arsenal, having suggested reports of a rift between the pair are "untrue".

The Gunners will go in search of their second win of the season under new boss Unai Emery, after beating West Ham United at the Emirates Stadium last weekend.

Ozil returned to training on Tuesday and is expected to be in the squad to face Cardiff on Sunday, live on Sky Sports. "It's for that, he's OK".

"Yes, this is true", he told reporters when asked about the drink ban on Friday.

Clearly, Emery wanted a more formidable presence in that part of the field and while physicality has never been a major part of Ozil's game, the Spaniard would not be the first person to believe the 29-year-old could offer more. But all the respect for me for this idea.

"It's clear the data behind us but I want to write a new data, a new present, a new future with Arsenal, with the players". Emery said he still isn't completely happy with Arsenal's high pressing game, and called for a more sustained effort against Cardiff. Also when we are with the ball we need to be together and to be organised. "After, it's [about] where he is better for us and where he is better also thinking [about] the opposition's style of play". We're in the centre circle and I'm looking up to Arsene and I said: 'Look at the dugouts Arsene, they're miles away. People have this assumption of us because of our approach past year.

"I like the possibility to have the player play in different positions on the pitch".

However, Emery remained vague about the prospects of holding midfielder Lucas Torreira getting his first start for the club.

"I think the lads have given everything they can and I've been quite pleased with the performances. Then there is a possibility to stay on the bench and then play". However, he said fresh-pressed juices are still allowed.

If Emery can do successfully do that, his task of securing a top-four finish and a Champions League place will become an very bad lot easier.

Young full-back Maitland-Niles suffered an injury on the opening day of the season, forcing him to be substituted early on in the match.
