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

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

Ian Wright has warned Unai Emery that Arsenal don't have the luxury of omitting Mesut Ozil from their matchday squads.

Mariner believes that is because the 30-year-old is doing little to justify a regular role or his new deal, telling the ESPN FC podcast of some baffling business: "I'm dumbfounded why Arsenal would let [Alexis] Sanchez go".

The Gunners have taken only two points from their last five Premier League away games and Emery's decision to leave Ozil out of the squad entirely against West Ham - while including teenager Eddie Nketiah - raised eyebrows further. "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".

And it is understood that the manager has lost faith in his playmaker and wants him out before the end of the month.

Ozil was left out by the Spaniard as the Gunners lost 1-0 thanks to a Declan Rice victor at the Olympic Stadium.

The technically gifted player who be a valuable addition given Arsenal's recent wobble. Like I said we win with him and lose with him.

But when pushed over why he opted to leave Ozil at home for the short trip to east London, Emery claimed all of those players who did make the trip deserved to be there.

Manuel Pellegrini said he hoped Marko Arnautovic would "take the best decision for everyone" after he appeared to wave goodbye to West Ham fans during the 1-0 Premier League win against Arsenal.

West Ham came close to opening the scoring when Rice headed wide when unmarked from a corner just before half-time.

Arnautovic has become a key player for the London club, with the former Stoke City man being transformed into a top-notch striker during his time at West Ham.
