Arsenal boss Emery wary facing 'very good' Vardy

Arsenal should make Aaron Ramsey captain and do everything they can to keep him at the club, according to former Gunners midfielder Jack Wilshere.

Victory in the Europa League and a top-four finish in the Premier League would constitute an excellent first season for Unai Emery at Arsenal.

'For me January is very far [away].

He's a very good player.

"It's hard for me to comment on because I'm not there but I do know he's a great player - if it was me I know I would want to keep him around". The future is tomorrow, no more.

'Every player, they need to feel they can play every match. "Individual things are not for me to speak about now", Emery said.

"If we are remembering the last match at the Emirates we won but not playing like we want - with the control against the opposition." he added.

"On Monday [against Leicester City] it's the same if he starts in the first XI or on the bench, to come with the focus for this match to help us". It's not different for other players'.

Emery is confident Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be fit despite sitting out the second of Gabon's Africa Cup of Nations qualifying wins over South Sudan in the past week.

But the Arsenal boss has called for calm after supporters began to hope their side could launch a title tilt. "We need every player with a big motivation every day, in training, continuing improving and helping us with his quality. The TV is [free] to choose the matches Friday, Sunday, Monday", he said.

After their opening eight matches, the Gunners find themselves sitting in fourth; two points behind leaders Manchester City who are only ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool on goal difference.

'We are first in one competition (the Premier League) and the TV is very important, ' he said.

Aside from shooting to the 4th position in the premier league table, Arsenal have gone nine games with a winning streak.
