West Ham eye Callum Wilson as Arnautovic alternative

Arnautovic played for Stoke before the Hammers

The 19-year old was the standout performer at the London Stadium as West Ham picked up an impressive victory over Arsenal as they continue their solid season under Manuel Pellegrini.

Unai Emery accepts it is "more difficult" for Arsenal to qualify for the Champions League after their 1-0 Premier League loss at West Ham.

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.

The Gunners have taken only two points from their last five Premier League away games and Emery's decision to leave Ozil out of the squad entirely against West Ham - while including teenager Eddie Nketiah - raised eyebrows further.

But when pushed over why he opted to leave Ozil at home for the short trip to east London, Emery claimed all of those players who did make the trip deserved to be there.

"We have won with him, we have lost with him, he is not one player that is for sale".

Declan Rice has been grabbing all the headlines on Sunday morning following his match-winning display for West Ham against Arsenal on Saturday which saw him score his first Hammers goal. "From the beginning we tried to play as a big team, to have the mentality of a big team, to have an ambitious mind, and I think the team today reflects all I am talking about", Pellegrini told reporters at his post-match press conference.

"We will see what happens in the next few days and I hope he will take the best decision", Pellegrini said when asked if the former Stoke man had been waving goodbye.

Emery has an agreement with Barcelona's Denis Suarez but the Catalan club are stalling over a loan deal as they want a commitment from Arsenal to buy the player in the summer, something the Londoners are refusing to do.

"He is improving in every game he plays, he is now more used to giving us a good build-up in front".

"I'm sure that we are seeing a top player soon and we will see not only for West Ham but also for the national squad that he decides to play for".
