New-look Arsenal left out controversy-hit Mesut Ozil but still impressed before they were edged 3-1 on penalties by Europa League champions Atletico Madrid in a friendly on Thursday.

And along with Arsenal's head of recruitment Sven Mislintat, another former employee of the Bundesliga side, there's a nice little quartet. Arsenal will start their Premier Campaign against the Manchester City at the Emirate Stadium and the following week the Gunners will take a trip to Stamford Bridge to play Chelsea.

Ramsey is now in the final year of his contract with Arsenal but Emery is confident the Welsh midfielder will sign a new deal and extend his stay at the Emirates.

'For me, I want him to stay with us, to work with us, to give the team the big performance. The club's previous captain, Per Mertesacker, retired in the summer so the position is vacant, and Emery believes Ramsey has the credentials to be a contender for one of the five roles on offer. "I think he is going to stay here with us".

"It's always nice to play with your old team-mates, with Aubameyang and Sokratis".
