Manuel Pellegrini sends message to West Ham fans after Bournemouth walkout

Jack Wilshere will be playing against Arsenal for the first time on Saturday

Jack Wilshere will be playing against Arsenal for the first time on Saturday

Both sides will be searching for their first points of the season at the Emirates after hard starts for Emery and new West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini.

Pellegrini added: "I think everyone praised Jack Wilshere not just for one game because if he could play in a normal shape without injury, he was always a player who makes a difference because he is a different player", said Pellegrini.

"It is not about how much I criticised the fans, it is how much the team needs the fans", Pellegrini told reporters.

Emery said he will continue using two different formations depending on the opponent - either a 4-3-3 as against City or a 4-2-3-1 like he used at Chelsea - but that he is not about to play with two strikers up front, even though that would allow him to pair Aubameyang with Alexandre Lacazette.

Emery also said the club will do everything it can to support to Mesut Ozil, who is continuing to face criticism back home in Germany following his decision to retire from the national team after he recieved racist abuse during and following the World Cup.

West Ham midfielder Jack Wilshere has promised to block all his emotions when he returns to the Emirates Stadium for the first time since leaving Arsenal.

As far as I'm aware, and I'm sure I'm not alone, I don't consider us to be Premier League contenders.

De Bruyne to miss three months for Manchester City
However, Arsenal legend Smith is tipping Manchester United to finish in third place in the Premier League table this season.

"Maybe they will be nervous, maybe they will be desperate to win their first game, so I can not know the reaction of Arsenal's players at the moment", he added. With two and one, it is like a 4-2-3-1 and one, two, is for a 4-1-4-1 or a 4-3-3.

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

The fact that we have faced two formidable and potential title winning challengers in our first two games should count for a lot.

Wilshere left the Emirates in the summer, with new Arsenal manager Unai Emery unable to guarantee him a first-team spot. "But, I [hope] the best for his career".

"On Saturday, I know that here, the supporters like him and have this respect also". We need to live with this.

"It's hard to know [when he might play]".

It's never good to hear that players are fear losing when conceding in games.
