Emery off the mark as Arsenal beat West Ham 3-1

Unai Emery has denied rumours that a rift with Mesut Ozil was the reason the German was not in Arsenal's matchday squad on Saturday. Substitute Danny Welbeck polished off the win with a goal in injury time. "He was sick yesterday, he spoke with the doctor and with me and we decided not to play today". "Today I said to him, come if he feels better".

Manuel Pellegrini's men now travel to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal, who have also lost two from two, albeit against champions Manchester City on the opening day, as well as Chelsea last week.

Pellegrini is yet to claim his first top-flight points as Hammers boss as the result at the Emirates made it three losses on the spin.

Fabianski and his Arsenal counterpart made a series of good saves before more slack defending by the visitors allowed Arsenal to turn the match on its head, with Issa Diop committing a costly double error. The difficulty is in this game because West Ham are a good team with good players and a good coach. Emery admitted it wouldn't be easy but agrees the fans need to see some improvement as well as the points.

There have been a lot of different players, no titles, a lot of criticism. For the second half we were speaking in the dressing room (of the need) to help more inside with two midfielders.

USA ambassador says United Kingdom should join Trump and put pressure on Iran
US Ambassador to Britain Woody Johnson said Iran needed to make tangible and sustained changes to behave like a normal country.

"We were very unlucky with the own-goal that put Arsenal on top, and the last goal was in the last minute when we are trying to get back in the game".

They fell behind to Marko Arnautovic's 26th-minute goal and after Monreal quickly equalised they conceded plenty of chances that West Ham counted the cost of missing.

"Maybe they will be nervous, maybe they will be desperate to win their first game, so I can not know the reaction of Arsenal's players at the moment".

"Every club you sign for they give you the same pitch: 'We've got a big project, big ambitions, we want to achieve this and that, we want to kick on, ' and I just happen to be lucky that City was the one club that didn't lie about it", added Kompany.

As well as "control", the other key to winning on Saturday is "confidence", as Emery explained: "The first idea for us on Saturday is to create chances and then the players' confidence for starting to arrive in the box, to score".
