Aaron Ramsey for Arsenal ‘not a big problem’ says manager Unai Emery

Petr Cech was the hero in Arsenal’s penalty shoot-out victory after Alexandre Lacazette’s injury-time equalizer offset Antonio Rudiger’s early goal.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery downplayed fears over Aaron Ramsey’s latest injury, but was more concerned about Sead Kolasinac’s leg problem.

Ramsey, who had initially been named in the team’s starting lineup, missed Arsenal’s penalty-shootout win against Chelsea in Dublin on Wednesday, but Emery said it was mainly a precaution with the Premier League start less than two weeks away.

“He has one muscular [injury] and we decided not to start him playing the match because he is maybe a bigger risk for him. I am waiting for the medical assessment and not a big problem,” Emery said. “Aaron Ramsey [is] not a big problem, Kolasinac maybe different because it is his leg. For that, we are waiting for the medical analysis.”

However, Emery wouldn’t be drawn on the possibility of Ramsey signing a new contract, with the midfielder’s future still undecided as he heads into the final year if his current deal.

“I don’t know. That is one question for the club and for the player,” Emery said. “I am very concentrated. I am focused. My focus is thinking every day for training, the player, for the match against Lazio on Saturday and then Manchester City.

“Ramsey’s with us. The contract is one question for the club and for the player.”

Arsenal won a penalty shootout after Alexandre Lacazette equalised in the final minute, securing another positive result for the Gunners after a 5-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in Singapore.

“The performances are getting better. I think it’s good,” Emery said. “At this moment we need to stay together and have these moments in the game. We controlled the match with the possession and good opportunities and creating chances for the goal.

“The performance tonight was good and to find our best preparation for the start of the competition.”
