Blackpool midfielder hopes home advantage can give Arsenal problems

Gunners boss Unai Emery gave an injury update on Thursday afternoon where he revealed that Mesut Ozil was not part of the morning training session.

Interestingly, the report claims that German global Sami Khedira could move the other way and arrive in north London at the end of the season; creating something of a midfield swap deal. I am happy because we need that respect between us.

He said: "It's brilliant for all of us who are involved. We'll be giving it our best shot". "Obviously I've had a bit of a slow start to the season, I was in and out and my knee was playing up a little bit".

Ramsey has been out of favour this season at Arsenal but has played well when used by manager Emery.

The same goes for Shkodran Mustafi, who came off at half-time in the win over Fulham with a minor hamstring complaint.

League One Blackpool will again be without defenders Ollie Turton (hamstring) and Curtis Tilt (hip) for Arsenal's visit to Bloomfield Road.

This will be the fourth FA Cup tie between Blackpool and Arsenal - Blackpool eliminated the Gunners in 1952-53 and 1969-70, with Arsenal winning the most recent encounter 3-1 in December 1999.

Ramsey joined Arsenal from Cardiff in 2008 and has won the FA Cup on three occasions - scoring the decisive goal in two finals.

Emery will be under pressure to mount a formidable cup run, having gone out to Tottenham in the Carabao Cup, while they're Premier League title hopes are non-existent.
