The Everton manager denied he was Özil's intended target, with the jacket thrown from the substitutes' bench as Silva and Emery argued over Shkodran Mustafi's cynical foul on Dominic Calvert-Lewin late in Arsenal's 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park.

Arsenal failed to click into gear and their poor away form continued, leaving them fourth in the Premier League table as they seek Champions League qualification.

They have won just five Premier League away games since Emery took over last summer - none against teams now in the top half - and have not kept a clean sheet on the road during that period.

"The most important thing is to be ready to help us, and he is now in this way".

But the playmaker, 30, has played in Arsenal's last eight games, winning six, drawing with Spurs and losing the first leg against Rennes in the Europa League. We conceded an unlucky goal at the beginning of the game from a throw-in and it was hard to play against a deep defence.

Kurt Zouma hailed the impact of Phil Jagielka's experience in Everton's win over Arsenal - but the club captain's future remains in doubt.

"With the chances we created we should have been more clinical. Like I said, playing for the first time with the skipper has been good for me and he brings good experience for us - the younger players".

Leno was unclear as to why his team continue to struggle away from home: "To be honest, I don't know".

"Now in the team we have a good atmosphere, good spirit".

However, one of the biggest talking points from the afternoon on Merseyside was Ozil's decision to lob a coat in the direction of the host's technical area in the game's latter proceedings.

The Gunners travel to Goodison Park in desperate need of three points in their pursuit of a top-four finish.
