  • EPL: Wenger speaks on Arsenal giving Ramsey 'huge contract' in January

Arsenal coach Robert Pires has revealed what Unai Emery's two main objectives are in his first season as the Gunners' head coach (via Sky Sports).

Supporters belted out the refrain during the second-half of a 5-1 Premier League victory at Fulham ahead of the worldwide break, with the visitors playing some scintillating football.

Arsenal will take on Leicester City in their next Premier League game at The Emirates on Monday night in pursuit of a seventh successive victory.

"I am not agreeing totally with the response of the supporters", Emery said.

He told the Islington Gazette: "I think you've got to look at the situation and ask: 'How many top teams in the Premier League and elsewhere could he get in?' To stay with them, we need to do better and get better at different things".

"Our demands need to be very high. The TV is [free] to choose the matches Friday, Sunday, Monday", he said.

A contract impasse is likely to see the 27-year-old leave in the summer - while the club may look to cash in on Ramsey during the January transfer window. My focus is on every match; the football.

"Maybe for Monday it's hard [for him to play]".

"I'm thinking about Monday's match first". If they let the home side play, there's no way they are coming back with anything other than gaunt faces.

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

Emery has chosen to use Xhaka as part of a two-man midfield, with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette all ahead of him.

And while Petr Cech has been back on the training ground this week after a three-week injury layoff, Emery said he is not ready to play yet: "Petr Cech is getting better from his injury but he's not training with the group".
