Arsenal boss, Unai Emery, has defended Mesut Ozil after the German playmaker threw his jacket at Everton's coaching staff during his side's 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park.
The defeat had the Gunners' hopes of finishing in the top four dented as the Premier League campaign continues to wind down.
Drama ensued in the latter stages of the Sunday clash after Dominic Calvert-Lewin was hacked down by Arsenal's Shkodran Mustafi.
The incident sparked a touchline brawl between Unai Emery and Everton manager, Marco Silva who was joined by his coaching staff.
It was at this point that Ozil, who was subbed off in the 74th minute hurled his jacket towards the home side's dugout.
The jacket landed at the feet of Emery, with tension that had now gripped the match cooling down moments after as play resumed.
"We need to limit our frustration and we are learning that," Emery was quoted saying after the match.
The Spaniard further admitted the result was unpleasant, vowing to move on ahead of Arsenal's busy schedule both in the Premier League and the Europa League.
"[It was] not a good result but we are in a good way, we are fourth in the table. We have a big match against Napoli in midweek and the next week against Watford is a positive game for us," he said.
