Aaron Ramsey says the Gunners start to the season is a big improvement on campaigns past, and has set the tone for what he hopes is to come.
In previous years Arsenal have stuttered in the early stages, allowing opposition to get ahead and resulting in nail-biting end of season runs to achieve Champions League qualification, but the Welshman is confident this team can now go the distance.
“One of the biggest things we’ve improved on is the start of the season,” he told Arsenal Player. “We’ve struggled in the last few years and had to play catch-up.
“Now we’ve started very strongly, we’re top of the league and that’s where we want to stay. The only way we can deal with being at the top is by taking every game as it comes.
“We need to make sure we give everything in every game and not hold back and think any match is going to be easy.
“There’s an opportunity in every game to pick up points and we’re just concentrating on our own games at the moment and that’s proven in the start that we’re having.
“Other teams have struggled so far and teams are going to take points off each other so it’s important to keep focused on our own game.”
Ramsey has now scored 9 goals for this club, almost doubling the total in his Arsenal career, and although Arsene Wenger admitted yesterday he’ll need to rest him from time to time, he’ll look to hit double figures in tomorrow night’s Champions League clash with Dortmund.
“At the moment, because of the way I’m playing, I want to be out there every minute of every game,” he said.
“But we have to be realistic and we have a lot of players in the middle of the park so the boss said he was resting me for the future games.”4,235 views
