Arsenal coach Robert Pires has revealed what Unai Emery's two main objectives are in his first season as the Gunners' head coach (via Sky Sports).

But Emery refused to respond when asked about Ramsey's future, saying only his demands on the player remain the same when Arsenal return to Premier League action against Leicester City, live on Monday Night Football. The supporters can enjoy it with us but also we're speaking with our reality every day.

Arsenal's Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey is set to leave the club after failing to agree a contract extension, and with his current deal set to expire in July it is rumoured that the Gunners may cash in during the January transfer window.

Despite the arrival of Lucas Torreira over the summer, Xhaka has established himself as a regular in Emery's set-up and has played in all eight Premier League fixtures so far this season.

He added: 'I want his performance like the other players.

"We need to improve because for example the match against Fulham was a very good result and a very good game for 90 minutes".

"Our target now is the same as in the first matches", he said.

"Maybe for Monday it's hard [for him to play]".

One name that has cropped up rather predictably is Arsenal's soon-to-be-out-of-contract midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

"I want the mentality for the next match. Individual things are not for me to speak about now".

'On Monday it's the same if he starts in the first eleven or on the bench, to come with the focus for this match to help us. If they let the home side play, there's no way they are coming back with anything other than gaunt faces.

Emery has chosen to use Xhaka as part of a two-man midfield, with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette all ahead of him.
