Pellegrini wants West Ham to take advantage of Arsenal's rocky start

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has compared midfielder Jack Wilshere to Andrea Pirlo, saying the two players have the same traits.

Pellegrini has hit back at suggestions Wilshere and Mark Noble can not play together.

And on Wilshere, Emery added: "I spoke with him for 15 minutes here at Colney before he left". But the pressure, at least for me, is always on winning or losing in every game, it is the same every game.

There are too many fitness and form concerns for me over a number of West Ham's summer signings.

Jack Wilshere will be returning to the Emirates to play his club of 17 years for the first time on Saturday, and looking to prove Sam Allardyce wrong in particular, after he suggested West Ham's midfield didn't have the legs for the Premier League.

Jonathan Pearce: No permanent Arsenal manager has ever lost his opening three games. I think that Arsenal are going through the same thing.

Monster Hurricane Lane unleashes torrential rain on Hawaii
Hawaii County firefighters, who were in touch with the home's owner, chose to evacuate the group before the water rose any higher. It is not a typical Hawaiian vacation for visitors, as high winds and downpours have already hit the big island of Hawaii.

"After the first two matches, we have two defeats and we need to win this match", Emery submitted.

Allardyce certainly seems to have a point if the first two games are anything to go by; the duo were overrun in the 4-0 defeat at Liverpool and then failed to impress as Bournemouth won 2-1 at the London Stadium last weekend.

Pellegrini's men threw away a lead in their first home game of the campaign against the Cherries, with the Chilean urging fans to "trust" the team in the post-match interview.

Mkhitaryan also insisted that the Gunners' two losses to start the season - against Manchester City and Chelsea - haven't dented their hopes of finishing in the top four, and reiterated that the team are on the right path under new head coach Unai Emery. But to change the way of playing and to change the system - it is not easy. This season we are working with him from July 1, 40 to 50 days, and he's not having any problems. It's for that, on Saturday, I know that here, the supporters like him and have this respect also.

West Ham United youngster Declan Rice is a very talented footballer.

"Then we are going to play and we are going to think after that, for us to win".
