Arsenal arguably attacked more fluently in their 3-2 defeat to Chelsea last time out, but Emery will be delighted with a three-point haul to boost an ongoing teething process.
Arsenal manager Unai Emery faced a very different type of press conference following his team's win over West Ham.
West Ham fans have responded to the message from the 33-year-old former Legia Warsaw star, who moved to the Hammers from Swansea City in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by The London Evening Standard to be worth £7 million.
Ozil's supporters will claim that West Ham at home is not the game to judge Arsenal without the former Germany global. Also, the win gives the confidence for the players. "It was open at times, but I am glad we got a win". "We need to add points, but we are going to continue searching".
That "balance" Emery has talked about following all of his Premier League games in charge of Arsenal so far may take a long time to arrive.
"We are progressing every game".
