Ramsey talks up Arsenal

Aaron Ramsey has stated that the 1-0 Champions League win over Marseille in midweek has the potential to kickstart Arsenal back to life, and that the players’ confidence is returning.

The Emirates outfit had a shaky start to the campaign, but have put in better performances of late; the Welsh midfielder scored an injury time winner at the Stade Velodrome on Wednesday.

With Stoke the next opponents for Arsene Wenger’s men, Ramsey is confident that his team have put their inconsistency behind them.

“The confidence is returning, no question. We’ve not had the greatest of starts but hopefully now we’ve turned a bit of a corner and we’re getting a few wins on the bounce,” he told Mirror Football.

“I feel it’s important to keep up the momentum and hopefully get another win over the weekend which will give us more confidence and belief.

“We need to take it into the league because we’ve done well in Europe so far. Hopefully we’ve got a few wins on the bounce so we just want to keep the momentum going.

“It was a great moment for me personally in Marseille and a great one for the club. We’re in a great position in the Group now and hopefully we can continue and finish the job off in Europe,” he concluded.

Arsenal have only lost one of their last six games, and with a number of home games on the horizon will look to string together a better run of form.
