Illness rules Mesut Ozil out of West Ham clash

Manuel Pellegrini

Ozil was surprisingly left out of the squad but still attended the game at the Emirates, a week after being taken off in the 68th minute in the 3-2 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal have had a rough start under new coach Unai Emery although much of that is a function of the hard schedule that had them face off against Manchester City and Chelsea in their first two games. "Ask the doctor, the doctor can explain better". "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".

"Today he was here", Emery added.

Mesut Ozil spent an hour in the Arsenal dressing room ahead of their meeting with West Ham United despite being unable to play because of illness.

"No problem with the player. And he feels better and he is here".

Welbeck, a late substitute for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, sealed Arsenal's win in stoppage time after Bellerin's fine run and cross gave him time and space to score from close range.

Despite the three points, Emery said there was still plenty of room for improvement and that his team couldn't find the right balance between attack and defence in the first half. "It's clear we need to improve and to not concede many chances like today". After going 1-0 down in the first half, we needed calm and to make sure this confidence was not lost.

Arsenal are the clear favorites and should be able to pick up their first win in two decades under a manager not named Arsene Wenger.

Emery told Match of the Day that he sat down with German Ozil and the team doctor on Friday and decided he would not play.

"We are progressing every game".
