Neymar missed Sunday's 1-0 win at Nantes due to a rib injury but Spaniard Emery believes he should be recovered in time.

"Neymar trained well (on Monday). He'll still feel pain for a few days but he took part in training and finished it well," said the former Sevilla coach.

"He'll need a week or two for the pain to pass. He's fine in non-contact (training) but if he takes a knock in the same area, the pain will persist.

"We'll see but he should be ready (to face Dijon)."

Brazilian-born Italy international midfielder Thiago Motta is not fit to return from a calf injury, though.
