Arsenal Boss Keen To Scupper Barcelona's Interest In Gunners Star

Winterburn, who played over 400 games for Arsenal, added: 'I think Ramsey isn't committing to a new Arsenal contract because he wants to see where they finish this season.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has opened up about his relationship with Mesut Ozil after there were reports of a bust-up at the start of the season.

"First, I knew Monreal in Spain when he was playing in Osasuna and in Malaga", Emery said. He could feel different [after quitting Germany] but every day with us I look at him and he looks well and happy, working with our demands.

"Last season, we were the best team in the bottom half and we hope to do the same again if we can".

"Mesut, like other players, works very well here and also working the ties and also together to improve things".

"I have a very good relationship with Mesut and professionally I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances".

Gareth Southgate gave a start to Marcus Rashford , a player now struggling to make his mark with Manchester United this season. You know that leads to a European Championship, which we have games at Wembley, which is going to be a brilliant experience.

Arsenal take on Ukrainian side FC Vorskla next Thursday to kick off their European campaign.

"I think confidence (at Newcastle) is high in terms of mentality, team spirit and the way we work".

Benitez too has a full-strength squad at his disposal for the Arsenal game and will be hoping his side secure all three points to get their first win of the season as well as jump out of the 18th position on the table they now occupy.

But such performances need to be put on consistently, and against Newcastle, Lacazette has the chance to show that he is not a hit-and-a-miss kind of player with another good performance.

Both Matt Ritchie and Jonjo Shelvey were missing before the global break but the manager revealed they are both back in the squad tomorrow. The tactics have to be right.

Arsenal's two victories in their last three away games are the same as in their previous 13 games before that, with the Gunners yet to win consecutive away games since May. Things like that can happen in every game, and that's why football is so hard.
