But the German star didn't travel with the squad to Merseyside last night and was not in the team which were comprehensively beaten by the league leaders.
After the match, Emery was asked if Ozil was injured and replied: "Yes."
Arsenal took the lead over Liverpool through Ainsley Maitland-Niles but once the home side equalised through Roberto Firmino there was no stopping them.
Firmino got a hat-trick while Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah got on the scoresheet.
And Emery admits his side struggled to cope.
He told reporters: “The result is one [reason] like you are telling us after our goal.
“I think we started well, but after our goal, they pushed, and when they push here, they play with great determination and with players who can make a difference all over the pitch.
“They scored three quick goals and it was a difficult moment for us. We spoke in the dressing room - it’s another experience for us.
“A bad experience but an experience to learn from. In the second half we needed to stand up, to keep our position individually and collectively on the game.
“The two last goals, two penalties, I think it’s a lot for us. I think VAR is important - it’s coming next year, because I think it’s going to help the referees to take better decisions.
“We only can think now of the match on Tuesday and know the difference between Liverpool and us was not like today’s result.
“Maybe we can do one balance, one mix between our draw and this result today. We have a lot of work to do, defensively also, we know we need to get better.” SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
