If there is one player who needs to adapt to Emery’s style of play as soon as possible to retain his place in the Gunners starting eleven, that must be Germany international Mesut Ozil.
The playmaker was surprisingly left out of the club’s Matchday squad last weekend, though, Emery reportedly claimed he was sick and wasn’t fit enough to feature against West Ham at the Emirates Stadium.
It was reported that the former Sevilla boss told Ozil to up his game, should he desire to remain one of the club’s integral players throughout this season.
However, the manager was seen having a private talk with the midfielder during training earlier today.
According to the Mirror, Emery and his stand-in captain were having a ‘father-to-son’ discussion while others are involved in fitness drilling.
Though the content of their discussion wasn’t revealed by the media outlet, both parties could be trying to settle their reported misunderstanding.
It was reported on Monday via Daily Star that the player had heated argument with the manager on training ground a day before their clash against West Ham.
Whatever it is they could be discussing, it will surely be beneficial to the whole team as they prepare to face Cardiff City on Sunday in their fourth match of the season.
It remains unknown if the German would be recalled back to the starting line-up or Emery would stick to the players, who helped him take his first three points since he replaced Arsene Wenger in May.

According to Sven Mislintat, Arsenal broke their promise to him about the sporting director role before adding that the two parties had different ideas on the future and that ultimately led to his exit from the club.
Sven Mislintat made his name as one of the best talent spotters in European football while he was at German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.
He was credited with the signings of players like Robert Lewandowski, Ousmane Dembele and many more.
The German scout left Borussia Dortmund for Arsenal in November 2017.

3 interesting reasons Arsenal should consider signing Kalidou Koulibaly
As the season draws by the day, Arsenal continues their search to sign players ahead of the new season.
It’s crystal clear that the club needs reinforcements in every position even as players like Petr Cech (retired) and Aaron Ramsey (Juventus) has left the club at the end of last season.
The London outfit had some weaknesses within the team last season as they failed to finish in the top four positions in the Premier League.
With a lot of defensive inconsistency and the need for squad depth, the Gunners must sign quality players to improve the defensive unit.
One of the players credible and suitable to excel in Arsenal’s defense is Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly even as we take a look at some of the individual qualities he can bring to the Unai Emery’s Arsenal.
Genuine Physical Presence
Arsenal might be renowned for its flair and free-flowing movement at the back as we have seen from Spanish fullback Hector Bellerin. But, the Gunners needs a physical presence at the back four as this will be to their own advantage in a 50-50 situation.
Arsenal has been physically overpowered in almost occasion defensively with Nacho Monreal struggling to cope with strikers like Anthony Martial and want away forward Romelu Lukaku.
But with the physical presence, Koulibaly brings alongside his aerial awareness expect the Napoli star to be an instant hit at the heart of the defense for Arsenal.

The African star has been a source of encouragement for African players aspiring to ply their trade as a defender in Europe.
That’s why the Senegalese center back would be a good addition to the squad even as Unai Emery and Arsenal benefits from his ability to withstand pressure from attacking opposition.
He’s in good shape as he’s inspired his Senegal’s side in the AFCON 2019 alongside Liverpool forward Sadio Mane.
A possible move for the player will ensure increased stability for Unai Emery and Arsenal even as the club aims (struggle) to keep French player and skipper Laurent Koscielny at the Emirates.
The Player’s Mental Assertion
The player has got good mental ability as he’s inspired Italian side Napoli in the Italian Serie A. The player’s ability to coordinate the defense, make interceptions is one of the reasons why Napoli may not let him go as he is a prized asset to the club with a lot of interest for his services from big teams in Europe.
But the big task is can Arsenal splash the cash for the player’s signature even as they are in a form of hold-up via the signing of forward Wilfred Zaha from Crystal Palace?
Unai Emery’s and the club must take a bold step in signing the player as he will bring some level of assertion Arsenal needs in the defense. The way the player handles possession is a delight to watch even as he makes intelligent break-up at the heart of the defence.
This is an interesting fact about his overwhelming quality as he’s got a strong mentality to flourish at Arsenal as a player.
