Mesut Ozil a doubt for Man Utd v Arsenal

That explains why Alderweireld - who played against Inter Milan in midweek and Chelsea last weekend - was benched for Spurs' match against Arsenal.

The German hasn't been in the squad for Arsenal's last two games.

This was Emery's finest hour in his new role, then.

Arsenal's next Premier League test is a trip to Manchester United on Wednesday night.

But while he is pleased with Ramsey's recent contribution, Emery indicated there had no been change to the contract impasse.

The midfielder was part of a Spurs side who collapsed against their north London rivals, conceding three second half goals to lose 4-2, having lead 2-1 at the break.

That Arsenal finish strongly, overwhelming often exhausted opponents, is undeniable.


For Tottenham, this was a third big game in nine days - following last weekend's victory over Chelsea and the midweek defeat of Inter Milan - and it felt like a bridge too far for exhausted players.

Emery added: 'Today he was working alone.

Tottenham was reduced to 10 men when Jan Vertonghen received a second yellow for an ugly kickout challenge at Lacazette in the 85th minute.

Aaron Ramsey was brought in the North London derby after 45 minutes as a tactical replacement for Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

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.

Miguel Almiron: Newcastle are continuing their interest in the Atlanta United player, while West Ham, Tottenham and Arsenal are also keen, according to the Newcastle Chronicle. Back spasms were also given as the reason when he missed October's win at Fulham.

Time will tell if Arsenal can return to the Champions League after a two-year absence.
