Arsenal utility Maitland-Niles: We're upbeat and passionate under Emery

The Gunners, who signed five first-team players in the summer window, have been strongly linked with a move for Barcelona midfielder Denis Suarez. "At the moment, we haven't had any news today about that".

"I don't know how Arsenal will cope with the likes of Carroll, Arnautovic and Anderson, but the Gunners are good going forward so it makes for an entertaining game".

Speaking the reporters ahead of Saturday's trip to West Ham, Emery said: "I don't know about his situation".

However, with Aaron Ramsey now all set for a move to Juventus when his contract expires at the end of the season, Emery needs to plan for the future so Ozil should get the nod over the Welshman. Every day he's here with us, he's working very well.

"In the last match I was very happy with him".

Paul Merson is tipping Arsenal to drop points at West Ham on Saturday afternoon. We have taken more care in our training and pre-match planning.

Suarez, left out of the Barcelona squad for the meeting with Getafe on Sunday night, wants to reunite with Unai Emery, under whom he won the Europa League with Sevilla in 2014-15.

Mesut Ozil should return to the squad after overcoming a knee complaint while Shkodran Mustafi and Laurent Koscielny are also pushing for recalls so Emery has plenty of options tomorrow.

We head in to the game off the back of a routine 3-0 victory over Blackpool in the FA Cup last weekend which booked a date with Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium in the fourth round.

Arsenal struggled with injuries throughout the festive fixtures but can welcome back a host of players for the derby at the London Stadium.

Nevertheless, Emery's sessions are notoriously intense and the Spaniard has conceded that he is toning down training to prevent burn out or repeat injuries. Also, we are giving chances to the young players and finding with them the regularity to be consistent when we need them to be.
