It was claimed Ozil stormed away from Arsenal's training ground on Friday after Emery told the midfielder he wouldn't start against West Ham.

Asked about Ozil missing the game, Emery replied: "It isn't true, that information".

The home game against West Ham is the one that Emery will look to as his first Premier League win, a much result much needed to instill some confidence and stave off the early criticism.

"So now we won against West Ham and maybe we showed people who didn't believe in us that we will be there this season and you have to count on us until the end of the season".

Nacho Monreal, an own goal from Hammers debutant Issa Diop and an injury-time Danny Welbeck strike was enough to secure the points.

"There is no problem with the player, speak with the doctor he can explain better", Emery added.
