Merson: Arsenal are going to get a hammering

Merson: Arsenal are going to get a hammering

Merson also hit out at Arsenal for their failure to agree a new contract with Aaron Ramsey.

Having won six games in a row, did they?

The Gunners continued their resurgence on Sunday afternoon, swamping their hapless neighbours away from home thanks to Ramsey's sensational strike, which was sandwiched between braces from strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.

"He can play anywhere, in any league, for any elite club. But defensively, they are just not good enough".

On his potent strike-force, Emery added: "It is one process, to know better after training, after every match, after every decision, how we are better on the pitch, between the players, in our tactical system and impose our timing on the pitch in possession with the ball".

After the match, Emery hailed Torreira's maturity on the field of play and explained what stands out most about the Uruguayan. Aaron's had a lot of injuries, but I watched him against Cardiff - and he played the whole game.

"We have to keep quiet and work like we did before and the season is going well. It is very hard but we must prepare, continue improving and show big commitment", said Emery.

The 29-year-old has not been called up to the Germany national team squad after retiring from global football.

City are top on goal difference, with Chelsea second and Liverpool dropping to third.

Mahrez has now missed five of his past eight Premier League penalties - one for City and four for his previous club Leicester City - and seems highly unlikely to be given another chance after blasting the ball over the bar in the 86th minute.

"We tried to win the game", he said.
