Arsenal boss Unai Emery praises Bernd Leno's play after Petr Cech injury

  • Aaron Ramsey has less than a year remaining on his current Arsenal contract

Cech hobbled off in first-half stoppage time during Arsenal's victory over Watford at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon, having appeared to injure his hamstring in the act of taking a goal kick.

Emery's side travel to Qarabag in the Europa League on Thursday before facing Fulham at Craven Cottage next weekend prior to the worldwide break.

As expected, this move has caused quite a stir, as it was generally thought that Ramsey was one of the key players for the current Arsenal set-up and that the entire team could be built around the 27-year-old's industry and talents. However, the new management structure at Arsenal means Emery has little say when it comes to contract negotiations.

Asked if he thought the situation would impact on Ramsey's performances, Emery said: "I think not".

Alex Iwobi also had a decisive impact off the bench as his cross was steered into the net by Craig Cathcart for an own goal in the 81st minute.

"He has the quality to play right or left, to do maybe more one-on-one [take-ons] against the opposition", he said.

"He's somebody that I'd like to see stay because I think he is that player who is never afraid".

Arsenal have won their last six matches in all competitions unlike Watford, who have not won in their last three, but Emery offered words of praise for his opposite number Javi Gracia.

You could argue that Everton and Watford had the better chances and could probably count themselves unlucky not to come away with something.

"I like him simply because when he gets in there he will finish and he's somebody that, given a run of games, he will do something because he's not afraid".

"We improved things on the pitch with the positioning, and then our moments are arriving to score", he said.

"The ball was near our box a lot, the rhythm of the match was not what we wanted". I am [already] very convinced by him. "We need to continue being calm, and giving them calm".
