The gunners romped to a 4-1 win in their New Year's Day clash with Fulham at the Emirates Stadium.

Yet Fulham did not make life easy for their hosts, Ryan Sessegnon missing two excellent opportunities before Granit Xhaka opened the scoring in the 25th minute.

"Our challenge now is to improve defensively", Emery admitted. Today's the first time we could play with Koscielny, Sokratis and Mustafi - and the injury to Mustafi in the first half meant we had to change to four at the back in the second half. We need to work.

Emery's decision to bring on Ramsey for Lacazette was booed by the home fans, but the Wales global scored minutes after coming on to restore Arsenal's two-goal lead, and Aubameyang's deflected effort soon after made it four as they secured the points.

The substitution was booed by a large number of fans, although Ramsey - who has been linked with the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus and Bayern Munich with his Arsenal career set to end when his contract expires - put the game beyond doubt with the third.

"I understand the supporters", Emery said. Emery explained. "I need to do my work".

"We are in relegation zone, they are higher".

Manchester United are keen for him to get some more first-team experience and want him to be playing every week, hence why Aston Villa are now showing an interest in acquiring him.
