Unai Emery: Top four difficult for Arsenal

Marko Arnautovic looks set for a move to the Chinese Super League

Emery left Mesut Ozil out of his matchday squad for the trip to West Ham despite the playmaker returning to training following an injury.

"I decided the idea of the players that I think are the best for this match", he said. Sometimes he is helping us, at other moments not helping us because of injury or because maybe the match is not for him'. "It's one decision, when is coming one player or not coming".

"He's working this week normally".

"If you lose some games, of course you lose confidence, but I don't think confidence is the problem.

Today the decision is to come with these players".

Declan Rice scored the only goal of the game at the London Stadium, meaning Emery's side are without an away league win since November.

Arsenal pressed for an equaliser but the Hammers survived three minutes of stoppage time as they held on for victory.

Rice faces a decision on his worldwide future with both England and Ireland hoping to get him in their squads, with Mick McCarthy recently revealing he's held discussions with England manager Gareth Southgate about Rice's future.

Emery is believed to have lost trust in Ozil's work rate in physical contests, but Wright says Arsenal missed a spark without their highest earner on the pitch as they succumbed to a 1-0 loss.

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.

But Emery instead opted to play Granit Xhaka alongside Matteo Guendouzi in the central midfield area, with Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette playing in support of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Hammers promptly rejected the offer and are hoping the 29-year-old will see out the remainder of his contract at the London Stadium.
