Emery warns Ozil ahead of London derby

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be hoping to get off the mark against Chelsea on Saturday

Mesut Ozil has been warned by Arsenal boss Unai Emery he must help team-mates to defend as he calls for commitment from all of his players.

Goals from Pedro and Alvaro Morata had given Chelsea a two-goal lead, the second goal coming seconds after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had missed a sitter from deep inside the home side's penalty area.

"This possibility to play with two or three midfielders, it depends on each match whether to change or not and the demand in each match whether we can do one midfielder more, either more attacking or more defensive, it depends", Emery said.

The Gabon forward boasts an impressive return of 10 goals from 14 league appearances, but six of those ten have arrived against teams that went on to finish in the bottom-half of the table last season.

Arsene Wenger's departure at the end of last season may have been long overdue, but it was a shock to Arsenal's system nonetheless and Emery must find a way to quickly breathe new life and inspiration into a team previously coached by one man for over two decades. "He needs to do (it) in each match, be demanding for us but defensive moments are for each and every player", he added.

It was almost the first point on the board for Arsenal under Emery, but it at least showcased a quality they have been accused of lacking for several years now: character.

Maurizio Sarri: Chelsea not yet Premier League contenders
I think he's not ready now for 90 minutes, but maybe, tomorrow, for the first 30 or the last 30 minutes he could be used. But Sarri has dismissed the importance of Arsenal losing against the Citizens.

For that reason, we need the balance but the result is like that.

"We have to improve", he said.

And it proved costly as Eden Hazard came off the bench to set up Marcos Alonso's late victor.

With the likes of Iwobi and Ramsey doing well, Emery will have to consider his options if Özil continues to underperform.

The Gunners lost their second Premier League match in a row under their new head coach thanks to a late victor from Marcos Alonso, after they had fought back from 2-0 down to head into half-time at 2-2.
