Now I feel one hundred per cent, I am no longer injured. I need to score goals and when I start to score and make good games it will be much simpler. I think I am missing a goal or assist to start come back."

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has denied that there is a problem of communication between members of his squad. The Spaniard has players from 13 different nationalities on his books but insists that nothing gets lost in translation.

"I think no – I have conversations with players, particularly individually with Bukayo Saka. Sometimes I use Freddie [Ljungberg] to do that conversation with individual players," Emery is quoted as saying by The Mirror. "Now my English is, from one to 10, maybe a six. But at six, I think the players can understand me. If not, some help is good."
