That explains why Alderweireld - who played against Inter Milan in midweek and Chelsea last weekend - was benched for Spurs' match against Arsenal.
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.
Richarlison scored Everton's equaliser
Aubameyang had opened the scoring before an Eric Dier header and a Harry Kane spot-kick sent Spurs in ahead at half-time.
However, Arsenal came back in the second half, with Aubameyang equalising, Alexandre Lacazette giving the hosts the lead and Lucas Torreira making the three points safe.
"In fact, it happened and we scored the goals at key moments.""We know it will be very hard in Manchester, because of their history and their present, we are going to prepare in the best way possible, to have the best performance against them".
Spurs started sluggishly at the Emirates and Arsenal fully deserved to take the lead, but slowly the visitors got into the game and two goals in four minutes turned things around.
"In the end when we conceded the fourth and the sending off of Jan Vertonghen, the game was over".
Pochettino said: "They made two changes and put another striker on in Lacazette and Ramsey". But after that we weren't good enough in the second half.
"[Emery told us] to be calm, to continue playing because there were 45 more minutes left, that we keep attacking because obviously in the second half we were going to find more spaces".
"Every single game we pick the best player to try to win".
Following their emphatic victory over their arch-rivals, Arsenal now sit fourth on the Premier League standings with 30 points, level with Spurs who dropped to fifth.
