Unai Emery confirms Mohamed Elneny will stay at Arsenal

Unai Emery confirms Mohamed Elneny will stay at Arsenal

"It's not my work but, for me, it's very important [Ramsey] stays with us", Emery said.

Premier League clubs can still sell players to European teams until the end of the month despite the domestic window closing on Thursday, and Welbeck had been linked with a move overseas in search of more regular first-team football.

This is the seventh consecutive season that Arsenal have kicked off a Premier League campaign with a home game, but they've only won two of the previous six (W2 D1 L3). Something in my guts tells me that Arsenal will just nick this one.

And the former Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla coach has stressed the importance of Arsenal being on the front foot.

All of this points to Welbeck being surplus to requirements and with interest from three Premier League clubs, he could leave before the window shuts. But for me, I want to enjoy the way [we do it].

"Today, we had a meeting with the players to close all the possibilities to leave or come with more players", Emery said.

"When we were in Spain each match against Barcelona with Valencia is very exciting and very demanding for me also to prepare this match".

"The other players are OK and we are working on the possibility to work with Ainsley, who has experience in this [left-back] position".

It will be interesting to see who Emery opts for in goal between Leno and Petr Cech but Sokratis is nearly certain to start on Sunday while Torreira will be a starter if he's deemed match fit after arriving back late to pre-season following the World Cup.

Sky Sports subscribers will be able to stream the match through Sky Go, whilst you an also get a Sky Sports Day, Week or Month pass from Now TV to watch the match. There were a lot of positives in the pre-season games the Gunners played, especially the seamless induction of young players like Matteo Guendouzi and Emile Rowe Smith into the first team.
