Aaron Ramsey believes Arsenal are still a work in progress under Unai Emery despite defeating Manchester United 2-0 to move back into the top four.

The Gunners produced a magnificent display to inflict a first domestic defeat on United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after goals from Xhaka and Aubameyang secured a 2-0 win at the Emirates.

That win ensured Arsenal moved into the Champions League places and are now just one point behind Tottenham in third.

And one man has experience in the top-four race Ramsey, and the Juve bound player is calling for caution.

“We have had a new manager come in with new ideas and it has been a season of trying to adapt to certain things that he wants from us and sometimes it has come off and sometimes it hasn’t – it is a working process,” Ramsey told Sky Sports.

“I am just happy we won the game and we have put ourselves in a great position to finish off the season and hopefully nick a top-four spot.”

Ramsey praised Aubameyang’s character after converting the second-half penalty barely a week after seeing his effort saved in the north London derby against Spurs.

“It took a lot of courage for him to do that but he is a confident guy,” Ramsey added. “He was in bits after the last game after he missed the penalty.

“He showed great character today to step up and slot that one away so calmly. The boys are buzzing for him and we are delighted to have come away with the win.”

Arsenal will be aiming to overturn their 3-1 defeat to Rennes at the Emirates on Thursday night.
