Aaron Ramsey: Ian Wright backs Arsenal contract 'stance' on Wales misfielder

09 October 2018

Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey sent a warning to Unai Emery with his celebration in the 5-1 win over Fulham, according to Martin Keown.

Arsenal are right to stand firm in contract talks with Aaron Ramsey and risk losing the Wales midfielder for nothing, says club great Ian Wright.

"I have to stick with Arsenal as they have to make this kind of stance because of the amount of players we've lost in this fashion", Wright said.

"He can play anywhere, in any league, for any elite club".

The pair have clicked on and off the pitch, Aubameyang now having scored 16 goals in his first 23 appearances - a better start to life at Arsenal than Thierry Henry.

The victory took Arsenal up to fourth, just two points off the top spot which is occupied by current champions Manchester City.

Lacazette, however, wants to silence any chat of such an achievement and focus on doing the things which have enabled Emery to oversee such a streak.

"We have to keep quiet and work like we did before and the season is going well". Aaron's had a lot of injuries, but I watched him against Cardiff - and he played the whole game. We will enjoy it, we are working well and we want to continue like this.

With Chelsea making up ground by winning 3-0 at Southampton, the league's three unbeaten teams go into the global break locked together on 20 points. "The best performer for us is every player".
