Aaron Ramsey wonder goal for Arsenal, Riyad Mahrez misses penalty

  • Aaron Ramsey of Arsenal sits on the bench during the Premier League match between Fulham FC and Arsenal FC at Craven Cottage

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.

Both stars became the first two substitutes in the Premier League to score and assist a goal in a single game.

"But between them, those three allowed Unai Emery to stay in the shadows for the start of his Arsenal reign".

Lacazette and Aubameyang scored two goals each, with Aaron Ramsey netting the other one for the visitors.

Ramsey also provided a superb through ball to set up Aubameyang's second - and Arsenal's fifth.


Yet, even if Ramsey does leave, Emery is clearly not short of midfield options, with Alex Iwobi impressing before being replaced by the Welshman and Germany's Mesut Ozil to come back in after missing Sunday's game with injury.

Summer signing Sokratis and German centre-back Shkodran Mustafi have been the preferred partnership in central defence for the Gunners this season but Merson is not convinced the pair have what it takes to keep Arsenal's good form going. I think we are in the first competition in the war.

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. We will enjoy it, we are working well and we want to continue like this.

"We tried to win the game", he said.
