Meanwhile midfielder and top Arsenal scorer Aaron Ramsay has ‘rejected’ Wayne Rooney’s claim that Arsenal can’t win the title this year.
“Our biggest problem over the last few seasons has been starting off well. But we’ve managed to do that this season. If we get ourselves into a strong position then our ability to get as many points as we can in the run-in has been second to none,” said the Arsenal midfielder.
“We had a fantastic run-in last season &, after the disappointment of the opening game of the season we managed to build on that.”
Arsenal midfielder Ramsey also told critics to ‘judge’ Arsenal at Christmas. He said: 'If we can do that now and keep it going up until Christmas then we know that we have the ability to compete."

Arsenal could also sign a United player after rumours have emerged that the club will ‘target’ Javier Hernandez in January after the Mexican known as Chicharito called for more action at United.
