‘For me it is not my best position,’ Ozil told Sky Sports.

‘I think my best position is as a No.10 but at the end of the day I have to accept and respect what the coach decides.

‘So I have to give everything I can on the right side, it’s new for me but it’s fun for me as well, especially with the goals and I will continue to give my best on that side.’

Ozil has also praised Emery for his approach since take over from Arsene Wenger in the summer.

‘He’s younger and has brought in some Spanish specialists and wants to make everything perfect,’ said the midfielder.

‘The team understand him and he has shown us his character and how he wants to play.

‘Of course, we need time to understand everything completely but it is going well – he is a very good coach and as a player you can speak to him and he listens which makes everything easier for us.’
