Match of the Day pundit Wright said: "It's really worrying".

Sead Kolasinac chose to cut the ball back for Lacazette when a shot would have been the better option after the ball broke for him down the left after 23 minutes, while Nasri probably should have followed the Bosnian's example when he drilled into the side-netting soon after.

"That's simply because he should be given the opportunity to play himself into form or get him on and he will play himself out on form".

It is the first time Arsenal have been beaten away from home by the Hammers since 2006, when Marlon Harewood's 89th-minute strike claimed all three points for the hosts at Upton Park.

However, if they are after a forward with an abundance of Premier League experience, 76 top-flight goals to his name, and a desire to play first team football, then they should look no further than Daniel Sturridge.

"He should be at least involved for me". "It's an issue that the club must see what is the best for him, for the player, for the club, for everyone. Everyone can think what they want to think, but we are just seeing what happens during the game".

Steve King questions why terms like 'white supremacist' are racist
Liz Cheney. "I think it was important that he rejected that kind of evil because that's what it is, it's evil ideology".

Emery admitted Ozil left out for tactical reasons at Bournemouth in November - but he has insisted the playmaker has a future at the Emirates.

"I was nine years old, playing for my local junior side and already a West Ham fan when a scout, Ronnie Joyce, took me over to Arsenal".

"We need Mesut Ozil".

"But also we have enough players to win today and impose our game plan and our tactics and quality against West Ham".

"The frustration is the same for everybody when they didn't play in a match".

"We know we can't lose him".
