The moment that this changes, then he won’t play. “I’m hoping he can sustain this level every three or four days. He’s putting in everything he has to try and do that, and I think his numbers physically have improved so much as well. He’s willing every day in training. “I know him really well, so I’m not surprised. I know his ability and I know the player we have there, and as well, the structure has to be there to be able to help him to take everything that he has inside.” Arteta’s worry is that Arsenal played so well and put so much effort in against Chelsea and yet still lost that confidence might take a knock before they face Manchester United tonight. But Arteta is determined to lift the mood again and is hoping the players can also lift themselves to get a much-needed win. Arteta added: “I hope that the result doesn’t effect them too much. That’s my worry now. “They were all physically blown and disappointed in how the game ended because they don’t feel that they deserved that, but we have to move on. They have to respond and this is the challenge now. Read Also:Ozil ready to partner Victor Moses in the New Year “Every game for us is a must win. Against any opponent we have to win.

It must be seen as something of a gamble as Ozil struggled under Unai Emery and even Arsene Wenger could not get the best out of Arsenal ’s biggest star and top earner on £350,000-a-week. But the early signs are that Arteta, who used to play alongside Ozil, can get the World Cup winner on song as he looks to make the former Real Madrid superstar the central figure in his team. Arteta said: “I just try to prepare the team collectively and individually with the strengths and the weaknesses that we have in mind. Arsenal told to agree Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang transfer if he’s not committed to club “I want to avoid the weaknesses and promote our strengths as much as possible. I think that Mesut in these can kind of positions can be very, very effective. “On his own he can’t do it. That’s what I was saying. He needs the collective structure and organisation and his teammates. Nowadays, there are only one or two players in the world who can do something on their own. “He needs help and he needs the team to play in a certain way to facilitate his strengths more and more in the game. That’s what we’re trying to do. “I put him in the team if I see every day that his attitude, desire and understanding of what we’re trying to do is there.center_img Loading… last_img read more

A haul of four Premier League titles, two FA Cups and four League Cups has been Abu Dhabi’s reward for Sheik Mansour’s lavish investment in the club. ‘I think this, in the last decade, has been the best team in terms of points and goals, in terms of everything, titles even — so congratulate Manchester City for that,’ said Guardiola. ‘When we analyse what happened in the last 10 seasons, especially when people from Abu Dhabi took over the club and bought good players, interesting managers and bigger stuff, I think we did it incredibly well. ‘People say, “How was 2019?” Now people are saying it is a disaster.

We’ve had problems with injuries, which sometimes happens. But Liverpool have been incredible — European champions and they have dropped just two points. ‘We have to congratulate them. I know the distance is not what it should be but it is what it is.’ As well as the injury situation, Guardiola feels aggrieved over a number of VAR decisions that have gone against the back-to-back champions this season. ‘You know what they are, you know that,’ he said when pressed on the issue. ‘There are things we can control, there are other issues we cannot control. We cannot control what a fantastic team like Liverpool have done so far, and there are other issues you cannot control. When everyone is fit, we can do it.’ Guardiola revealed that City have already turned their thoughts to next season’s Premier League title race.
