Pellegrini could include West Ham new man vs Arsenal, big call

The news was heartbreaking moment for Wilshere, who tomorrow tackles his boyhood club for the first time since joining London rivals West Ham.

West Ham captain Mark Noble has been unable to train this week because of a back injury and is expected to miss this match.

Emery expressed his admiration for Wilshere and said the move was made in the best interests of his career, telling reporters: "I spoke with him for 15 minutes here in Colney before he left".

"They've got a new manager, but I know the players, so hopefully it'll be a good time to play them".

Ramsey started Arsenal's 2-0 loss to defending Premier League champions Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium earlier this month.

Arsenal have faced criticism for surrendering possession while playing out from the back but Emery insists his players must work hard to dominate games.

Arsenal boss Emery has brought in his own players with Wilshere surplus to requirements. Most Arsenal fans will wish Jack Wilshere well at West Ham United with an exception of Saturday's match.

"After the first two matches, we have two defeats and we need to win this match against West Ham", said Emery. He was respectful and honest, and we had a good honest conversation about football and where he sees my playing. I think that Arsenal are going through the same thing.

Though Arsenal's start to the season makes for poor reading in Unai Emery's story in charge of the Gunners so far, it is notable that the level of opposition faced by the Spaniard in his first two games in England were as tough as they come in the Premier League. "I know him and I respect him and everyone has his opinion", said Pellegrini.

"And then, he chooses what the best was for him in his future".

"For me, we didn't have the control in our first two matches".

Pellegrini, who guided Manchester City to a league title in the 2013/14 season, has commented that it is not very easy for a club like Arsenal to quickly change their dynamics under a new manager.

"We want to go forward and score", Emery added.
