Just In: Ramsey and Monreal could play against Man City as they trained today

AARON RAMSEY and Nacho Montreal both took part in Arsenal training this evening as they aim to get into Unai Emery’s starting line-up against Manchester City.

Ramsey and Monreal had been injury doubts due to calf and knee injuries respectively.

But it seems Emery will be able to call upon both players for Arsenal’s first Premier League game of the season tomorrow after they worked with the team in a training session at the Emirates Stadium tonight.

It means Ramsey could take his place in central midfield with Emery set to choose between Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira, Mohamed Elneny and summer signing Matteo Guendouzi.

The uncertainty over Monreal meant Ainsley Maitland-Niles was set to deputise at left-back but the experienced Spaniard could now take his place in the team.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, Emery said he had been working with Maitland-Niles to get familiar with the position.

He said: “Today, Nacho Monreal began to train with the team. As well, Danny Welbeck has come in this week but on Sunday it will be too early to start playing him.

“The other players are OK and we are working on the possibility to work with Ainsley, who has experience in this [left-back] position.

“We want to give him confidence.

I’m not sure because I am going to decide tomorrow [Saturday] on the first 11, but Ainsley is the player who started the last match against Lazio.”
