Unai Emery announces Arsenal squad for 2018 ICC in Singapore

Ozil has been on holiday since Germany crashed out of the World Cup at the group stage and has yet to return to training with the Gunners, with Emery having begun working with those players who were not involved in the tournament in Russian Federation.

'Last year was hard for everyone, not only Mesut.

"I want to work with him with a new way and with an ambition to continue with this quality and help with this quality, getting better with the team".

Asian fans will be keen to see how Emery fits German star Mesut Ozil into his formation while the likes of Lichtsteiner and Papastathopoulos will use the Singapore matches to forge a defensive partnership for the long season ahead.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed that he is still unsure of who he will pick at his club captain.

N'Zonzi is fresh from winning the World Cup with France and has been linked with Arsenal and Barcelona this summer.

The club are focused on trimming the squad after completing their main incoming transfer business.

"For me it's the same for one player as it is for 25 players, to help them. But here we are working with 22 players, the young players, the loan players, first-team players and important players", Emery said.

"For me, in all my career, I want to work with an experienced person [who is] a club man".

Emery changed all 11 players at the break, but it did little to disrupt the flow as Eddie Nketiah clipped home from close range eight minutes after the restart.

"These are players at other clubs who all left their mark at Sevilla but are earning more elsewhere and now we have our own players". "And I am very, very happy with him".
