Arsenal boss Emery: I could use Ramsey...

Arsenal boss Unai Emery admits he plans to use the absence of Aaron Ramsey in tonight's pre-match team-talk ahead of the Europa League final against Chelsea.

Ramsey will miss what would have been his last game of an 11-year Arsenal career because of injury ahead of his free transfer to Juventus this summer, and Emery believes it will be an emotional farewell.

Asked whether Ramsey could be used in the team-talk, Emery said: “It will be a good opportunity, a good idea.

“For the final, we want to do something important with some players: Petr Cech [who is retiring this summer]. Danny Welbeck [leaving at the end of his contract]. Aaron also.

"We want to touch something emotional for this match."
