Aaron Ramsey: Ian Wright backs Arsenal contract 'stance' on Wales misfielder

Ramsey joined Arsenal from Cardiff in the summer of 2008.

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.

The Gunners continued their resurgence on Sunday afternoon, swamping their hapless neighbours away from home thanks to Ramsey's sensational strike, which was sandwiched between braces from strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.

"It was hard for Fulham because they played well in the first half. We have worked and knew we could go forward so everything is better now". And saluting his recent form, Emery told reporters in his post-match press conference that Torreira has the weapons to remain a crucial part of his starting line-up as he looks to return the north London club to the Champions League and eventually consistent title contention.

"We've seen him [Ramsey] in the Euros dominating when he was absolutely fantastic, we've seen the season [2013-14] he has with Arsenal scoring 20-plus goals and was incredible, we've seen he can score in big games, winning cup finals", Wright told BBC Radio 5 live.

"Our performance over the 90 minutes was very important; to be together and with our performance we found each moment and each player", said Emery. I think we are in the first competition in the war.

Gary Neville doesn't think Arsenal can win the Premier League this year. We will enjoy it, we are working well and we want to continue like this.

Fulham have picked up five points from their opening eight Premier League games.

However, the team will be going on break to their respective countries for the global assignment and they will be returning to face Leicester City on October 22.

City are top on goal difference, with Chelsea second and Liverpool dropping to third. Four or five years ago, every club wanted him - Manchester City, Barcelona.
