But Emery warned the increasingly optimistic fanbase against getting carried away.

"I am not agreeing totally with the response of the supporters", Emery said.

Arsenal will take on Leicester City in their next Premier League game at The Emirates on Monday night in pursuit of a seventh successive victory. The supporters can enjoy it with us but also we're speaking with our reality every day. "Calm because we need after more than a month, [him to] feel first he is doing some things well, and then when he can play and do games in the training, we can think he is okay to play". "I want the mentality for the next match, individual things are not for me to speak on now". "(With) only three days difference between one match and another, you can't do that", added Emery. Our target now is the same as in the first matches.

Arsenal are now enjoying a nine-match winning run across the Europa League, Premier League and Carabao Cup.

"We need this calm because we (beat) a lot of opposition teams with very poor performances".

Liverpool and Manchester United have been linked with moves for Ramsey, while the midfielder is free to talk to foreign clubs in January and arrange a pre-contract agreement.

Ramsey said during the worldwide break that he has no intention of pushing for a move in January, and Emery urged the midfielder to stay focused on the next match. My reason, I explain to every player and to you also, I want the mentality for the next match.

"His motivation is very clear", said Emery. I want every player to stay OK, with the mentality to prepare, to play and [be] together to win. "The last match he started on the bench and played 25 minutes with this performance".

"Any decision we take along this way, is always going to be based on whether this is good or bad for Arsenal, if it's a responsible decision or if it can be detrimental for Arsenal, that is basically our main criteria in every step of the decision making". "It's not different [than it is] for other players".
