Arsenal have found their rhythm under Unai Emery, winning nine consecutive matches across all competitions, but there is still uncertainty to be solved.
The future of Aaron Ramsey has grabbed a lot of headlines so far this season with the likelihood that the Wales international will leave the Emirates Stadium after a decade in North London as his contract is due to expire next summer.
Emery could approve a sale in January but fans hoping for Ramsey to shine during the international break in order to raise his price-tag will be left disappointed, as he attracted plenty of criticism for his display against Spain on Thursday.
Wales were swept aside by Luis Enrique’s side, losing 4-1 in Cardiff, and fans gave their assessment of the 27-year-old on social media, with many identifying problems in his game and some suggesting he does not perform for his nation like he does at club level, although others did see positives.
We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
Ramsey rarely puts in his arsenal like performance for Wales sadly. Maybe he’s asked to do to much

In a friendly match where Wales had nothing really to lose, there seemed to be no passion to play for their Country, Aaron Ramsey did far too little. Not enough forward play, Wales were going backwards for most of the game. Come back Chris Coleman!

Giggs got it very wrong today. 5 ATB not a good idea, and John looked clueless in his positioning at times. 1 CB vs a strong Spain side needs to be questioned, Ramsey had a shocker. Wilson should’ve found Roberts overlapping more than he did. Smith looked good when he came on,

Well that was truly awful performance fm Wales for most of game tonight. Brooks, Smith + Lawrence picked up energy a bit 2nd half + Ramsey

Wales a little better as Ramsey came deeper. Made no sense to play him so far forward. Always play your best players in the middle in international football, they aren't going to get enough touches otherwise and mark themselves out of the game. Bad gameplan.
