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

Manuel Pellegrini liked much of what he saw from his West Ham team, despite a third defeat in as many Premier League matches at Arsenal.

When asked about Ozil's omission, and if it was due to a training ground argument, Emery was quick to dismiss the claims and said the player was missing due to illness.

Ozil was surprisingly absent from the team as Emery picked up his first win in charge of the Gunners, beating West Ham 3-1 at the Emirates.

The Belgian worldwide, whose time at City has been plagued by injuries, appears to have finally found consistent fitness and is a key component of the City team that has started this season in ominous fashion with convincing victories over Chelsea in the Community Shield and Arsenal and Huddersfield in the Premier League.

"When I said that a new team, with a new manager and new players, needs time, it is because it is true". "Today I said to him, come if he feels better".

The Gunners have lost their opening two league matches for the first time since 1992 - to Manchester City and Chelsea.

There were plenty of positives to take, though, not least the amount of chances they created.

"I am not happy with the result but I am very happy with the performance of the team", he told a news conference.

The only other incoming manager to lose their first three matches since 2008 is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - whose ill-fated reign at Cardiff began with losses to West Ham, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Nacho Monreal found a swift response and West Ham felt Arnautovic's absence after injury robbed them of the striker with an hour played.

Another former Arsenal player made an immediate impact as goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski kept out Henrikh Mkhitaryan's strike with a tremendous stop. "We need to find the balance".

"We were unlucky to concede an own goal that put Arsenal on top". "First of all, I've got to concentrate on football and I quite fancy our chances". We had a tough start and are trying to improve every game, ' Ramsey explained.

"Both teams can not win, we will see what we get out of it this weekend but we must work exactly the same again after this game".

"We to improve tactical things and earn the confidence for the players after two defeats".
