Arsene Wenger reveals extent of Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey's injury

Wenger

Wenger believes he wants to stay, but refused to even discuss whether it was more important for Arsenal to keep him or fellow contract-rebel Alexis Sanchez, who is also set for summer free agency.

He's convinced that with Manchester City becoming an elite force in English football and Arsene Wenger still at the helm, chances for Arsenal to win the title look increasingly bleak - and he thinks the duo should seal a transfer away from the Emirates.

But Wenger insisted: "I believe he wants to stay". "You have as well to show the trust and the confidence that we have in the players who did not start last week".

The former Barcelona attacker clearly does not want to ply his trade at the Emirates Stadium, and the player only has a few months left on his contract at Arsenal.

Speaking in his pre-match interview before the Carabao Cup 1/4 final with West Ham tomorrow night Wenger explained Ramsey's situation.

"The game we played at Liverpool was probably the worst game we played all season", he said.

If anything, Arsenal were lucky to secure all three points as the visitors made a number of opportunities throughout the match. "I know that people are not happy with it, but it's part of the game".

Arsenal's first game of 2018 is a massive one, for they welcome London rivals Chelsea on January 3 before travelling to Championship side Nottingham Forest for a FA Cup tie four days later.

That said, it's now almost ten games in a row that he has been a consistent, influential figure, taking his goal and assist tally from zero and zero in mid-October, to three and five where it is now.
