Arsenal not title challengers yet claims Leicester boss Claude Puel


The Gunners host Leicester on Monday night, less than three days before they kick off their Europa League Group E clash against Sporting Lisbon in Portugal.

Arsenal should make Aaron Ramsey captain and do everything they can to keep him at the club, according to former Gunners midfielder Jack Wilshere.

'For me January is very far away, ' Emery said.

"You can't do that with play and rest, play and we can't do that without changing players". "I want his performance like the other players".

If we are remembering the last match at the Emirates [against Watford], we won but not playing like we want, with the control against the opposition. "We need every player with a big motivation every day, in training, continuing improving and helping us with his quality".

Arsenal look likely to be without Sokratis Papastathopoulos for Monday's Premier League match against Leicester City.

Leicester City manager Claude Puel on Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette: "He is a complete player with good transition with the ball and without the ball". "He started with some difficulties and lost [the] first two games but after they have worked and played well to win games in the cup, Europa League and Premier League".

But the Arsenal boss, who is enjoying a nine-match winning run, refused to compare the forwards - revealing Lacazette was a target ahead of his move to Arsenal.

"But we want to play a lot of matches. It's one of the teams I really liked growing up as a child so... it will be a dream come true to play for Arsenal". For me it's not an excuse because we are preparing for Monday.

"Manchester City and Chelsea were the first two games", he said. "He needs to continue his adaptation for us, for the Premier League".

The France worldwide has scored 14 goals in his last 24 games for the Gunners, including a brace in a 5-1 win at Fulham before the global break. We can not write a book tonight about to win trophies.

But then again, those wins have been tainted by a cavalcade of comical defensive showings as well, so there indeed is some hope in this one for Leicester. There are different ways.

"We are speaking together with Laca", he added.

"In the football world this is how it is, I have this habit when I am doing well or when the people think it is not well".

Bellerin is poised to get the nod on the right-hand side of defence.
