Emery has a decision to make about who to play at the base of midfield, with Matteo Guendouzi impressing in his first few games for the club but still only 19-years-old and in danger of being overused.
"In his career Mesut played like a 10 and on the right, coming inside with his quality", Emery went on.
We will see what happens but I feel good.
"We are continuing our process with our positive things and our work".
"Firstly we need to win and I think it is very important that in the last match we won", the Spanish manager told reporters on Thursday. We will work, we will help him, give him the possibility on the pitch to be together, to find his qualities for us.
"When we opened this possibility that, when you win the Europa League, you play in the Champions League, this I think is the key to improve the interest in this competition".
"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".
"Last year, we had some games in a row (when) we weren't winning, but we were close". We were missing a chance, and then maybe they would score.
You never know because your body, sometimes you start with some problems, some injuries and you can't continue giving 100 per cent. "And I want to push every player to be okay to help the team if for one minute, 30 minutes or half time or 90 minutes".
