Reports Claim Ozil Omitted From Arsenal Squad Over Row With Unai Emery


Unai Emery, the Arsenal head coach, said he would take full responsibility if any of Ozil's team-mates are subsequently taken ill as he fended off reports of a training-ground row with the club's highest earner.

"We are happy with the first three points after two defeats, but it's clear we need to improve", said Emery, who dismissed reports he had fallen out with Mesut Ozil after the flu-stricken German missed the match.

The Arsenal manager also discussed a reported fallout with star midfielder Mesut Ozil, who missed the win against West Ham due to illness.

"Today I saw good things, but also things for improve. But he did not leave training [due to an arguement], but because he was going to his home, because he was sick". "There is no problem with the player, speak with the doctor he can explain better". After going 1-0 down in the first half, we needed calm and to make sure this confidence was not lost.

"There are a lot of young players and we're working very hard, with a lot of intensity".

"I like the boy [Sarri] has brought in, Jorginho, I think he has been absolutely outstanding", Wise told Goal . He's one of the best players we've ever seen in the Premier League, and bringing him back was a masterstroke.

Despite the three points, Emery said there was still plenty of room for improvement and that his team couldn't find the right balance between attack and defence in the first half.

Pellegrini did not seem to be anxious when asked if there would be doubt creeping in around West Ham after another slow start and predicted where his side will be by Christmas.

Pinball on the edge of the Hammers box saw the ball fall to Lacazette, whose cross cannoned off Diop and into his own net to put Arsenal ahead. We need to continue working to not concede many chances.

"I think then, the team showed every supporter that they wanted to win".
