Unai Emery 'wants to sell Mesut Ozil this month'

West Ham are lining up potential moves for a whole host of strikers as they prepare themselves for life without their talisman Marko Arnuatovic.

Arsenal old boy Samir Nasri made his first Premier League start for West Ham against his former club and nearly produced an assist in the first half when he showed great composure to hold the ball up and lay the it off to Felipe Anderson on the edge of the box.

'Simply because he should have the opportunity to either play his way into form or get him on there and he'll play himself out of form so we can see exactly what is happening with Mesut Ozil.

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". "In the position he's in, at the age of 19, he's going to be 20 tomorrow, I don't think there's much people better than him in that defensive, holding position".

"We will see what happens in the next few days and I hope he will take the best decision", Pellegrini said when asked if the former Stoke man had been waving goodbye.

The programme even reaches his beloved Hibernian Football Club, where two players are under the Grand Slam winner's stewardship. Players accumulate injuries, but his have been low-grade and to parts that don't matter so much; no hips or back for instance.

"It's our challenge", Emery said of improving Arsenal's away form. "This result makes that more hard". They send little messages to us supporters and everybody who is watching that they have to work out. We started the season away well, being competitive and winning. "We need to do more to be more competitive and to impose our ideas and our quality".

Mesut Ozil didn't even appear on the bench for Arsenal with uncertainty over the playmaker's future.

"Today the players who were here are the players who deserved to be in this match. [N'Golo] Kante and Claude Makelele, those types of players, up there, are what he reminds me of because he completely breaks things up and gets the team ticking".

"He is improving in every game he plays, he is now more used to giving us a good build-up in front".
