Merson: Arsenal are going to get a hammering

Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey came off the bench to enjoy a dream cameo against Fulham on Sunday - but his future appears to be away from the Gunners.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has urged his Arsenal FC teammates to maintain the mentality that has seen them bounce back from two opening defeats to win six successive Premier League games. "The best performer for us is every player".

"I have to stick with Arsenal as they have to make this kind of stance because of the amount of players we've lost in this fashion", Wright said.

The former England worldwide thinks that the Arsenal defence is not good enough for Unai Emery's side to maintain a title challenge despite their nine-game winning streak.

Arsenal FC have put themselves in fourth place in the Premier League with their impressive run, sitting two points behind joint leaders Manchester City, Liverpool FC, and Chelsea FC.

Summer signing Sokratis and German centre-back Shkodran Mustafi have been the preferred partnership in central defence for the Gunners this season but Merson is not convinced the pair have what it takes to keep Arsenal's good form going.

"We have to keep quiet and work like we did before and the season is going well".

Aubameyang has scored 16 goals in his first 23 appearances for Arsenal - a better start to life at the club than record goalscorer Thierry Henry.

Riyad Mahrez missed a penalty and Manchester City their chance of pulling ahead in the Premier League as the champions could only draw 0-0 with Liverpool in a tightly contested game at Anfield.
