Managers: 'I wouldn't sell Ramsey for £50m'

Arsene Wenger's lavish praise of Aaron Ramsey headlines our round-up of managerial reaction from the Premier League.

Arsenal 3-0 Cardiff City

Arsene Wenger: (Asked if he would sell Aaron Ramsey for £50 million) : "No. We don't want to sell anybody, we want to keep the team together. I've suffered enough for years for having to sell the players. Now we are in a stronger position financially. He keeps surprising me. He has matured as a player and a person as well. We came here in the FA Cup a few years ago and he had a very difficult game. Now he shows how much he has developed as a person.”

Malky Mackay: "The score is not a fair reflection of the game, but I am not going to apologise for having a go. That's what we did, and we certainly gave them some problems in the second half. The calmness on the ball in the second half makes me very proud of the players. We were playing against a team who have had a manager in situ for 17 years. Over that time he has had a lot of money to build a recruitment process to bring in top players like we have seen here.”

West Ham United 3-0 Fulham

Sam Allardyce: "The only disappointing thing was that we didn't score more goals before the subs came on. That was something I was getting pretty nervous about at 1-0, knowing Fulham could capitalise on a mistake and perhaps get something they didn't deserve. We had many chances to go 2-0 up before the subs came on, but when they came on and finished it off it is just great for you as a manager.”

Martin Jol: (On his future) "It is not in my hands. If I have to worry, I was probably worried a couple of months ago because it is not one day and then the other. It is probably the last two months we have been inconsistent. I think it has worked out for me (at Fulham). We had over 100 points, probably more than West Ham, over the last couple of years - more than any other team in the bottom half of the table.But over the last couple of months I think sometimes we are not strong enough."

Newcastle United 2-1 West Bromwich Albion

Alan Pardew: "The second goal was an absolute cracker and at the end in which Shearer smashed so many in. It's great to see a new name do that and Moussa (Sissoko)'s work rate and commitment was just as good as the goal. He's had a few chances and he waited for the ball to come down and he's hit it true. It brought the house down. It's important in the Premier League to have momentum. It's an amazing armoury and if we keep that glow and feeling then we'll keep plugging away."

Steve Clarke: "We were a little bit passive in the game. We didn't press the ball as well as we normally do, we didn't create enough. We had one or two half chances as Newcastle did. The reaction second half was good. We god about them and played with more intensity. But a wonder strike has denied us any points."

Everton 4-0 Stoke City

Roberto Martinez: "Gerard Deulofeu made a big impact and allowed the performance to create a scoreline which suggests it was easier than it probably was. I think he was really disappointed with last week. From my point of view I told him I thought he was outstanding against Liverpool but he had two good chances and he felt he should have taken them. During the week he was left with a negative feeling that he didn't deserve, that is why I felt it was right for him to start and flush that feeling away and he was desperate to do that.”

Mark Hughes: (On Deulofeu) “"We were aware of him, we knew he was a talent and he is obviously a talent. We made an enquiry ourselves but unfortunately he came here and not to Stoke. He is a very talented boy and I am sure it will only be a loan deal, I am sure Barcelona will keep hold of that asset. We were poor on the day but credit to Everton, I thought they were very good and made it difficult for us.”

Norwich City 1-0 Crystal Palace

Chris Hughton: "It feels like a big win for us. We played very well in the first half and scored a good goal, but we knew they would come back. It is never comfortable viewing when you look at the league table and you are in a position you do not want to be in, so whatever places we have jumped tonight is a nice feeling."

Tony Pulis: "You have to take your chances. We did not have the breaks today. How the hell (Sebastien) Bassong gets that (clearance) over the crossbar from there, it was unbelievable, and then the kid who stops Barry's shot from going in with his header, Cameron (Jerome) had a really good chance, so we have had the opportunities. But I can't fault their work-rate, they gave it everything, but you need a break and we did not get that."

Aston Villa 0-0 Sunderland

Paul Lambert: (On Prince William, who attended the game) "I don't think he'll watch Match of the Day. It's great, it's the first time since I've been manager here that he's been here, which is a great thing. But it probably wasn't an ideal game for him to come and watch. I don't think we deserved to win the game, I don't think we deserved to lose it."

Gus Poyet: (On Emanuele Giaccherini’s bad miss) "He's so sad. He doesn't stop thinking about it and saying sorry but that's football and things happen for a reason sometimes. For us it was our best performance away from home because we made it difficult for them. We were brave on the ball, we created two or three very good chances so for a team down at the bottom playing away from home I don't think it's too bad.”
