Aaron Ramsey says that the team are ready to treat every game in the Premier League run-in like a cup final, and that they want to avoid going down in history as the first Arsene Wenger side not to qualify for the Champions League.
Since Wenger’s arrival, the Gunners have finished sufficiently high in the league to play at Europe’s top table, but lying four points behind the filthy Sp*rs and with 9 games, they’ve got a tough job on their hands.
The Welshman spoke to Sky Sports News and said, “It is massive for us to be in the Champions League and be in a competition where you are competing against the best teams in Europe.
“Since Arsene Wenger has been here, none of the sides have failed to qualify and so we do not want to be the first.”
And like Nacho Monreal earlier in the week, Ramsey says they have to take it one game at a time.
“We are coming to the stage now where we need to treat every game as a cup final. We need the points and hopefully we can do that.
“We have done well and got some points when others dropped them a couple of weeks ago so hopefully we can continue doing that and have a similar result as we had last season.”
