Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: 'Olivier Giroud is not a substitute'

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi will miss the Premier League trip to West Ham

The long-serving Arsenal manager must have enjoyed news of Jose Mourinho, his long-time tormentor on and off the pitch, being the target of a milk missile in the aftermath of a heated Manchester derby.

"In sumo you never can tell who the guy who wins is. The victor never showed his happiness as there's a deep respect for the opponent". Is it something you can copy? "I don't know because it is not part of our culture". It's always a little bit like an offence. It's amusing because in the media, you big games up like it's life or death and then this happens.

"That's part of the intensity and the importance of the game, sometimes it can go a bit overboard". It happened to us, it happened to them and it's unfortunate. You want to keep that passion on the pitch.

Arsenal face West Ham on Wednesday looking for their first win in three league games, and Wenger said he will be without both Aaron Ramsey and Shkodran Mustafi for the match.

Haley: Women Who Accused Trump Of Misconduct 'Should Be Heard'
Haley's comment is a break from the administration's assertions that the allegations have no merit and should be dismissed. I know that he was elected. "I know that he was elected", Ms Haley said. "So when we see it, we call them out on it".

Wenger, whose Arsenal team were involved in the infamous "Battle of the Buffet" at Old Trafford in 2004 when pizza was thrown at Sir Alex Ferguson, believes that players ought to be much more respectful in victory than they sometimes are.

France worldwide Giroud, who came off the bench in the 72nd minute to replace compatriot Alexandre Lacazette, made it 1-1 in the 88th minute with a glancing header into the bottom right corner.

Everton captain Wayne Rooney has scored for the first time in a Merseyside derby with a late penalty to take an unlikely point in a 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Anfield. I speak to all my players individually and it's hard to speak openly about those conversations.

Giroud has not yet started a Premier League game this campaign - with boss Arsene Wenger preferring club-record signing Alexandre Lacazette up front - but he has made an impressive contribution from the bench, scoring four league goals so far.
