  • Aaron Ramsey of Arsenal scores his team's third goal 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.

Arsenal striker, Alexandre Lacazette is not ready to accept the comparison teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and his countryman and former Gunners, Thierry Henry.

It only took Ramsey a matter of seconds to put Arsenal 3-1 up with a sweet finish courtesy of an Aubameyang's assist.

The Gunners lost their opening two games against Manchester City and Chelsea but have won all nine of their subsequent matches in all competitions.

The Welsh playmaker is available on a free transfer this summer and has yet to be offered a significant deal by the Gunners.

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.

With Arsenal heading into the worldwide break on the back of a positive run of results there is talk they could now finish back in the top four - if not challenge for the title - having missed out on Champions League football for the last two seasons. We will enjoy it, we are working well and we want to continue like this.

"I trust and believe that if we do this, one day we will win the game".

Defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea at the start of the season suggest Arsenal's clashes with Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United in November and December will prove better evidence of whether the revival is sustainable.

City's normal penalty taker, Sergio Aguero, had already been substituted when Virgil van Dyke clattered into Leroy Sane in what the defender later admitted was "not a smart move".

"Riyad feels deflated, he feels he has let us down", he said.
