We will see what happens but I feel good.

"I want to find with him the possibility to do the best, to make decisive passes, to do more near and in the box to score", he told reporters.

Matt Ritchie scored the victor against Arsenal back in April, whilst it is obvious that Newcastle carry far more threat when Shelvey is in the team. I want to push them, I want to be demanding to prepare this match - Mesut the same.

"In the process, and firstly we need to win and I think it is very important that in the last match we won".

"The players have the habits to play in the global break, in important matches, defending their identity and when one player stops doing that, I think it is also good for them to focus only on their team", said Emery on Thursday.

"Mesut, like other players, works very well here and also working the ties and also together to improve things". We will try to set a team up that can win with the tactics, and that's what I have to do.

"I have known him for a long, long time". If teams can not play in the Champions League, it is very important.

"Saturday is another step we can do, it will be hard but I want to continue [to show] our personality on the pitch and impose this personality on the opposition and to find the win". The tactics have to be right.

"We are playing against a very good team but we have to approach it with the belief that we can do what we did a year ago".

Both Matt Ritchie and Jonjo Shelvey were missing before the worldwide break but the manager revealed they are both back in the squad tomorrow.

You never know because your body, sometimes you start with some problems, some injuries and you can't continue giving 100 per cent.

"With the fans pushing and supporting, we have a chance (against Arsenal) - for sure".
