Emery is hoping for a fresh start for a player he wants to see relishing his opportunity to affect games for the club.
And speaking ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash with Newcastle, Emery opened up on where his relationship with Ozil now stands.
With Ozil having retired from worldwide football, Emery has had a prolonged opportunity to work with his highest-profile and best-paid player over this past fortnight and is adamant that they do have a strong relationship.
"The first time, maybe, he could feel different but every day with us in the work, I look at him and he looks well and happy, working with our demands every day", said Emery. I want to push them - I want to be demanding.
Here for me it isn't for a lot of the time speaking about what people are telling us.
"Mesut, like other players, works very well here and also working the ties and also together to improve things".
"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". The Nigerian global has had a positive start to the season and will be hoping to continue that on the weekend.
"Mesut, I look at him with the focus totally here".
There have been calls for Stephan Lichtsteiner to come in at right-back but I think Hector Bellerin will keep his place and he should once again line-up alongside Nacho Monreal, Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis in the back four.
