Unai Emery: Mesut Ozil's Arsenal omission defended by manager

Mauricio Pochettino

Man Utd are targeting Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino

Unai Emery has suggested that he left Mesut Ozil out of the Arsenal squad to face West Ham due to tactical reasons, claiming that he has trained normally all week.

Acknowledging that yesterday signaled "a defining moment" in the young career of Declan Rice, Kerr believes Irish fans may have been that bit happier if the versatile youngster had "scored an own-goal and Arsenal won the match".

But, after their latest setback against the Hammers and with a game at home to Chelsea next week, Emery admits Arsenal need to string together a better run of form. It's a bad result. If we can win today we are playing against Chelsea with a three-point maximum distance.

"The big opportunity for us is that we can take in our hands the possibility to be closer to them".

"Now it's more hard, it's clear", the manager admitted in the wake of their London Stadium loss.

Emery's team seem to be stalling, but the lack of creativity when confronted with a stern West Ham defence made the absence of Mesut Özil from the squad all the more surprising. Yet to gain a significant uplift in fortunes in the post-Arsene Wenger era, Arsenal is facing another season in the Europa League unless it wins the competition to qualify for the Champions League.

Mundo Deportivo reports that Suarez is keen on a move in order to reunite with his former boss Unai Emery, whose relationship with the 25-year-old is said to be a significant factor in Arsenal's attempt to lure the Spaniard over to the Emirates. They send little messages to us supporters and everybody who is watching that they have to work out.

Suarez flourished under Emery during a single season loan spell at Sevilla in 2014/15, helping the club win the Europa League. "We need to do more to be more competitive and to impose our ideas and our quality".
