Rafa Benitez signals change in tactics for Newcastle's home game against Arsenal

'I'm sure lots of top clubs are monitoring the situation and are ready to poach him.

@SimonBrotherton: Newcastle won the last meeting between the sides 2-1 at St James' Park in April, and the way Arsenal have started the season, you'd think the Magpies are likely to have some chances here.

'I don't think he could get into the Manchester City and Liverpool teams, but it would hurt Arsenal fans to see another of their superstars leave to a Premier League rival'.

"They (Rondon and Yedlin) trained this morning for the first time (since returning from global duty)". Things like that can happen in every game, and that's why football is so hard.

Ozil has yet to register a goal or assist in the three games he has played, and was substituted in two of them.

Now it is very important for me to think first [about] the match against Newcastle [at the weekend], we need to win the three points and then think the same for the Europa League. Arsenal travel to Tyneside to face Newcastle, who have their own problems to worry about.

Benitez on Newcastle's confidence: "Last year, we had some games in a row [when] we weren't winning, but we were close". This season, after a full pre-season, his general partnership with fellow frontman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, has been one of the talking points building up to Arsenal's season.

The retired Germany worldwide was back for the 3-2 win against Cardiff City a fortnight ago, but he again failed to last the full 90 minutes in South Wales.

All players on global duty last week returned in good health and are available for selection, Arsenal said. With six goals from their last two games it appears that Arsenal's attack has begun to function at something like full effectiveness, but having conceded three in return - very almost costing them two points against Cardiff - their defensive organisation still leaves much to be desired.
