According to the London Evening Standard's James Olley, both Liverpool and United are considering taking advantage of the prospect of Arsenal losing Ramsey for free in the summer by making a January bid.

"It was an important goal for Aaron and an important goal for us", said manager Unai Emery with more than a touch of understatement.

"But we played City today".

They've also scored 11 less goals without the 22-year-old Uruguayan in action.

Aaron Ramsey's current contract at the Emirates stadium will expire next year May and the Gunners' chiefs have been trying to convince him to sign another deal.

"The impact he's made in the last few games Iwobi, coming on and he's actually replaced Ramsey and he's made an impact".

"Ramsey - who is yet to sign a new contract - could have sulked after being named as a substitute but he is not that sort of player".

As shown in recent weeks, he is still a very important player on the pitch for Arsenal.

"We have to keep quiet and work like we did before and the season is going well".

The Fekir deal collapsed in the summer and it would cost in excess of £50million to revive, but Ramsey is likely to be available for less than half that figure, given he now has just six months left to run on his contract. I think we are in the first competition in the war.

Riyad Mahrez missed a penalty and Manchester City their chance of pulling ahead in the Premier League as the champions could only draw 0-0 with Liverpool in a tightly contested game at Anfield.

City are top on goal difference, with Chelsea second and Liverpool dropping to third. The midfielder is one of the best in the Premier League and has proven it over a number of years.
