Unai Emery On Benching Mesut Ozil: Others Deserved To Play

Unai Emery On Benching Mesut Ozil: Others Deserved To Play

West Ham's Michail Antonio has given his take on the "difficult situation" facing his team-mate, Declan Rice and his worldwide future.

Ozil has missed a number of games this season, with differing reasons given for his absence.

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

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is reportedly desperate to sell Mesut Ozil before the end of the January transfer window.

When pushed over why he left Ozil out, Emery said: "I decided the players I think are the best for this match". If we can win today we are playing against Chelsea with a three-point maximum distance. Like I said we win with him and lose with him.

'It's really worrying. I know that Unai Emery has had his problems with big players in dressing rooms before, ' Wright explained on Match of the Day.

"If we want to be up there, we have to win".

U.S. government shutdown hits record length with no end seen
The shutdown on Saturday became the longest USA government closure of the modern era, exceeding the 1995-96 funding lapse. Meanwhile, 800,000 federal employees will begin their 24th day Monday either furloughed or working without pay.

Arnautovic's desire to leave West Ham was reiterated by his brother - who acts as his agent - shortly after the club rejected the £35million offer for the former Stoke City man.

It is a hard situation, I can't put myself in his shoes. The Gunners have been missing a spark, suffering three defeats from their last six league games, including yesterday's disappointing 1-0 defeat to West Ham.

He is yet to decide whether to represent England or the Republic of Ireland at worldwide level, but Pellegrini is sure that whichever nation he opts to play for will benefit. "[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".

"There is nothing 100 per cent sure so we will see in the next days how it develops".
