Nasri Shines as West Ham Beats Arsenal

Arsenal manager Unai Emery defended his decision to leave Mesut Ozil out of his squad

"Samir Nasri is a top player and when he has more minutes and is 100% fit then he can make the difference for us - as he did for Arsenal and Manchester City". In November, Emery cited "physicality and intensity" when Ozil was left out at Bournemouth.

The Arsenal head coach stuck with the side which beat Fulham in their last Premier League outing, but the visitors were poor as they failed to find the back of the net in a league game for the first time since the opening weekend of the campaign.

"I also think the rules should say you can not change your allegiance if you play U-21, that should be the end of it". If we can win today we are playing against Chelsea with a three-point maximum distance.

As for Ozil's future, it remains to be seen how he will react to being left out again by the Spaniard, with fans undoubtedly uneasy at the situation given it appears nearly certain that Aaron Ramsey is on the way out. We could've won or lost.

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini took Marko Arnautovic off for Andy Carroll on 71 minutes and the Austria forward, who is reportedly close to moving to China, appeared to be waving goodbye to the London Stadium faithful.

The 29-year-old's brother and agent claimed earlier in the week that Arnautovic wants to leave for the Chinese Super League and implored the club not to stand in his way. It's a bad result.

Weather Authority: Light snow overnight
By late morning Saturday , officials had reported almost 11 inches of snow at Lambert International Airport in St. A Winter Storm WARNING is now in effect for the Quad Cities until 9pm this evening.

"We'll see what happens in the next days", Pellegrini told Sky Sports.

Although Ozil and Arnautovic were talking points, match-winner Rice was singled out for praise by Pellegrini.

"For me he is like another player", Emery added.

The Welshman, who started on the bench against the Hammers, is all set to join Juventus on a free transfer in the summer, with the Serie A giants having offered him a €7 million (£6m/$8m) per year contract.

"But he is a good player".
