Emery set for baptism of fire as Arsenal host Man City

Goalkeeper Ospina is also likely to move on, having dropped down to third choice following the arrival of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, and has been linked with Besiktas.

"If it's not their goal to win the league, why all the changes in the club?"

"I'm not convinced they have the squad to make a top-four challenge, but they will pick up plenty of points at the Emirates although they must show they have the defensive capabilities to compete with the best on the road".

Ramsey is a key figure in the club's midfield but they could lose him for nothing next summer if they don't get him tied down long-term.
