Arsenal fell to a 1-0 loss at Everton in a Premier League on Sunday, as the top four aspirations of the Gunners suffered a major setback. And frustrations in the away dugout boiled over as Mesut Ozil vented at head coach Unai Emery after the German playmaker was substituted for Super Eagles star, Alex Iwobi

Ozil, who has suffered a tense relationship with the Arsenal boss since the start of the season, threw his jacket angrily in the direction of Emery following his substitution in the 74th minute, with Arsenal struggling to create any meaningful opening against the Merseyside club.
It appears Ozil was trying to throw the jacket at Everton boss Marco Silva during a heated argument between him and the Arsenal boss, only for the jacket to graze Emery. Hopefully, Emery does not take it in bad light.
It summed up a frustrating afternoon for the Gunners who fell to a Phil Jagielka goal scored in the first half off a throw-in which the Arsenal defence failed to deal with.
Emery made two changes to the side that started in the win over Newcastle United last Monday, with Mohamed Elneny and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the first team in place of Aaron Ramsey who recovered just in time to make the bench beside Alex Iwobi.
Elneny and Mkhitaryan, however, proved to be bad calls from Emery as they offered next to nothing in the Arsenal midfield while wingbacks, Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland-Niles provided no support, both in attack and defence.
Arsenal looked a better side in the second half following the introduction of Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at half-time, but Everton maintained their shape to snap a four-game losing streak against the Gunners.
Considering all that has happened between the two this season, how do you see Ozil’s action affecting his relationship with Emery going forward?
