All the latest news and gossip from The Emirates Stadium this Thursday.

Carl Jenkinson, who played well in the absence of Bacary Sagna for Arsenal against Hull City last night, has spoken about the upcoming busy week.

Arsenal face Everton, Napoli and Manchester City over the course of the next week and he knows they must remain focused:

"If we play how we have been playing I'm sure we'll be fine but of course things can change quickly in football and it's very important that we go into these games with the right attitude to continue this run that we're on."

Arsenal legend Gilberto Silva has been speaking to talkSPORT about many things including the season for Arsenal so far.

The ‘Invincible’ stated:

“They play a really nice game you know, really good football… they have a chance this season because they are doing a very good job at the moment. But I am very confident that they can achieve that [win the title] this year… I expect that [success in the Champions League], I think everyone is expecting that, they will do well in Europe again and that they can reach the final in the end and this time be champions. We were very close in my time but I hope this year they can achieve that.”

Arsenal have revealed a bust in honour of former chairman Peter Hill-Wood. He had been on the board at the club for 51 years from 1962, following in the footsteps of a legacy.

Hill-Wood said of the occasion:

“This was a big surprise for me. I knew nothing about it in advance and I am very flattered and honoured.”

Alvaro Morata is going nowhere in January. The Real Madrid striker has been linked with loan moves to both Arsenal and Tottenham in January - but the Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has now categorically denied the rumours suggesting he could be on the way out:

“Morata remains with us because we need a footballer like him at Real Madrid this season. Although he has not played many matches this season I have confidence in his work for the team."

Barcelona are reportedly watching Arsenal breakout star Aaron Ramsey - according to the Daily Mail.

They suggest that Barca scouts are taking a keen interest in the Welshman and have watched him feature for Wales twice as well as for The Gunners in their last four games.

Wenger has previously intimated that Ramsey would not be sold even if a team bid £50 million for the player.
