Arsenal could also be without Ozil against United on Wednesday night after the German worldwide missed the win over Tottenham with an apparent back problem.

Sunday saw Arsenal hosting longstanding rivals Tottenham Hotspur in one of the most thrilling North London derbies in recent history.

In Ozil's absence, Arsenal have flourished in a formation with three centre-backs and it remains to be seen whether the midfielder would slot straight back into the side when fit again.

It later emerged that the German worldwide had been suffering from back pain and was not fit enough for the match day squad.

Emery doubled down on his central threat after the break, introducing Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette and going with a 3-4-1-2 system which pummelled Juan Foyth and Jan Vertonghen into submission; the latter eventually being sent off.

"I said yesterday he's had backache since last Tuesday", he said.

"He couldn't play in Kiev [against FC Vorskla] or yesterday".

For his part, Fury wasn't initiating much offense either but was still winning rounds with his long jab and occasional right hand. Saturday night in Los Angeles, one of the biggest heavyweight showdowns in recent memory will take place.

"Today he was working alone, I don't know if he's okay for Wednesday".

Four men have been charged by the Metropolitan police over incidents related to Sunday's north London derby. "And when he's got time, he's got quality on the ball", said Wright.

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

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.

"If you watch it, we're celebrating, I don't leave the pitch at any point and some of their players that are on the bench come to us".

"Then he came to the Premier League and I think he's a very important player here, first at Chelsea, then at Manchester United".
