'Absolutely Catastrophic Defensively': Fans Critical of Arsenal Star Despite Attacking Success

Lydia FlemingAug 27, 2018

Arsenal manager Unai Emery reportedly makes it clear to midfielder Mesut Ozil that he needs to improve his work-rate if he is to play regularly this season.

"It isn't true", said Emery.

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.

Unai Emery reiterated that Mesut Ozil missed Arsenal's match against West Ham United because the German was "sick", denying reports of a training ground bust-up.

Another former Arsenal player made an immediate impact as goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski kept out Henrikh Mkhitaryan's strike with a tremendous stop.

"Today I saw good things, but also things for improve".

Beijing retaliated by imposing the same percentage of retaliatory tariffs on 545 USA items, also worth $34 billion. The SCI 300 Index was up 0.59 per cent by mid-morning, having fallen as much as 1.8 per cent shortly after open.

While many Arsenal fans will have been breathing a sigh of relief after their indifferent start to the season, bottom-of-the table West Ham and boss Manuel Pellegrini are still searching for their first points. "He left the training and went home because he was sick". If he felt better on Saturday, he should come'. "There is no problem with the player, speak with the doctor he can explain better".

Debutant Issa Diop put through his own goal, but Ramsey and his team-mates could only rest easily when substitute Danny Welbeck found an assured finish deep into stoppage time.

In an end-to-end start to the second-half, Pellegrini's men passed up another great chance to re-establish their lead.

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.

"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".
