Mauricio Pochettino has launched a staunch defence of Juan Foyth following the youngster's costly mistake during Tottenham's 4-2 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

Emery added: 'Today he was working alone.

"They pushed a lot for us", he told Sky Sports.

The Wales worldwide has spent over ten years at Arsenal, playing nearly 350 games for the club, and helping the Gunners win three FA Cup titles.

"I think for our confidence it's a very good match", he said.

"We were watching Tottenham play at home against Chelsea, they won, with a big, big performance with their supporters".

However, in the Premier League alone, Ozil has scored or assisted 81 goals since arriving at Arsenal and is the Gunners' most creative player so far this season, providing 20 chances for his teammates up to now, although he only has one assist to his name so far.

The Injury Has Hit Shaw Pretty Hard: Ashwin
On the one hand, we're too aggressive and probably stepped over the line. "Now we're getting called tame". On his the bowling effort in the practice game, Ashwin said: "I thought the wicket was pretty flat".

Foyth largely acquitted himself well considering the occasion but he was at fault for Arsenal's third goal when his attempted pass was intercepted by Aaron Ramsey in the build-up to Alexandre Lacazette's strike.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright was quick to condemn the incident while analysing the game on Match of the Day 2. Asked when Ozil suffered this problem, Emery said that he "did not know".

"Why? Because Lacazette has very big experience scoring against every opposition team".

Speaking after the win over Spurs yesterday, Emery gave short answers when quizzed about Ozil's absence. "And because Aaron has experience against Tottenham, he has experience in derby matches, he has experience to help us come back in the 90 minutes against every team".

Ozil was axed for the win over Bournemouth last weekend and Emery publicly suggested that the playmaker wasn't suited to playing in high intensity games amid reports he's concerned about the players work ethic.

"He has a back ache", Emery said. I don't know what's wrong with it.
