Pellegrini's answer when asked if Arnautovic is leaving West Ham

Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi returned from injury for Arsenal but there was no place in Unai Emery's squad for Mesut Ozil.

Emery's side were beaten by Declan Rice scoring his first Premier League goal for West Ham and the Gunners have now taken just four points from their last four league games.

"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".

"We win with him, we lose with him". Like I said we win with him and lose with him.

Ozil's last full game was the 3-1 win over Burnley on 12 December but he has been left out of the starting XI on nine occasions in the league this season. A 2-1 win at Bournemouth in November was the only time Emery conceded the former Germany worldwide was left out for tactical reasons. We could've won or lost.

The Hammers recently received a £35m bid from an unnamed Chinese club for Arnautovic and, despite the fact that the club have expressed their intentions to hold on to the Austrian, it appears as though he wants to leave, with his brother and agent confirming that he is keen to accept the offer from China.

Kuchar was flawless on day three, posting four birdies without dropping a shot, to be the 54-hole leader at 18 under. The four-time Ryder Cup team member won a bronze medal for the United States of America at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Former top flight forward Andy Gray believes Marko Arnautovic was indicating he is leaving West Ham when he was brought off against Arsenal on Saturday.

"We will see what happens in the next few days", The Sun quote the Hammers boss as saying.

"I think he's doing the right thing by taking his time and thinking about his situation".

He is yet to decide whether to represent England or the Republic of Ireland at worldwide level, but Pellegrini is sure that whichever nation he opts to play for will benefit.

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

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