Press conference

Unai Emery discusses Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil

Unai Emery was asked about Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey after Sunday’s north London derby win over Tottenham Hotspur.

Our playmaker missed the game following a back spasm sustained in training, while our Welsh midfielder made a big impact from the bench.

Here’s what Emery told the media:

on Mesut Ozil's injury…
He has backache.
 
on when he got it…
I don't know.

on whether he was at the stadium…
I don't know. It's a good day to speak about the players who were playing.
 
on Aaron Ramsey’s contract…
I was thinking first about the first XI, then I was looking at the decisions, choosing the first XI with different possibilities. Aaron has chances to help us, either by starting the match or when the match is in the second half to play minutes. Above all today can be his day. Because it's against Tottenham and he has experience of matches like today. We are continuing with him in our process, helping him to be with us with his performances, with his qualities and his experience here.
