Arsenal beats West Ham for Emery's first win

Arsenal beats West Ham for Emery's first win

There were reports prior to the start of the Gunners' win over West Ham that Mesut Ozil argued with Unai Emery and was dropped by the former PSG boss.

Illness was cited as the reason for Ozil's absence, and Emery was adamant that was the case after the match despite reports of a bust-up during training.

Ozil was substituted after 68 minutes of Arsenal's previous game, a 3-2 defeat by Chelsea, and it is understood he has been told he must work harder to keep his place.

"But not only Felipe, other players did better than the opposition". "He feels better today and before the match he was with me", Emery said.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery faced a very different type of press conference following his team's win over West Ham. "He left the training and went home because he was sick".

"No problem with the player. He left to his house and I said to him, to come [to the match] if he feels better and he feels better today and before the match, he is with the team and with me".




"The first half, we needed calm".

It was a chance for the Gunners to get their first points of the season but unfortunately for them, the Hammers took the lead early on when Marko Arnautovic's powerful shot found a way past Cech.

West Ham also started the Premier League season with two back-to-back losses to Liverpool and Bournemouth.

Accentuating the positives of Arsenal's spirited comeback, Emery added: "We improved in the second half and controlled more like we want".

"The confidence will grow with every game, so that's great".

"We got our first win today which was massive for us, but there's a long road ahead and a lot of games to play".
