Rafa Benitez explains why Newcastle's Premier League stats aren't "real" - yetAnd after securing their first away win of the season at the Cardiff City Stadium two weeks ago, Emery is targeting a victory against Newcastle but insists it will be a hard.

'I have a very good relationship with Mesut, ' the Spaniard said. "I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances".

Ozil has looked slightly out of place when Emery has deployed him on the right wing rather his normal central role as a No. 10, but Emery reiterated that the German is happy switching between the two.

Emery insists that he has known the Spanish worldwide for a long time, seeing him from close quarters during Monreal's time in Spain with Malaga and Osasuna.

The 53-year-old was behind the appointment of Emery and also brought in Raul Sanllehi as head of football relations and Sven Mislintat as head of recruitment.
