Ramsey: Win important before FA Cup final

Aaron Ramsey says all eyes are now on the FA Cup after Arsenal ended their Premier League season with a convincing 2-0 win over Norwich City.

Pleased with the way the Gunners have won five league games on the bounce to build momentum before next Saturday’s showpiece final, the 23-year-old told Sky Sports:

“Our target was always to win our remaining games in the league and we’ve managed to do that.

“We’ve got 79 points which is an improvement from last season and it was important to have a win before we go into the FA Cup final.

“That’s where you want to be playing, in finals, and we have one now so we’re looking forward to it.

“It means a lot; we haven’t won anything in many years so it’ll be a great trophy to win. I’m sure if we do go on to win it we’ll be even more hungry to get to more finals and to win more trophies.”

Smashing home a fantastic volley at Carrow Road to notch his 15th goal of the campaign, the Welshman also took a moment on the quality of his strike.

“We were on the counter-attack and I was screaming for the ball at the far post. It was a great ball by Olly [Giroud] and I just thought I’ll have a go here and it ended up in the top corner. It was a nice end to a good move.”

It’s fair to say that our Welsh Jesus is the king of understatement.

Showing slightly more enthusiasm, the boss said of his midfielder’s goal: “Fantastic, it was great. He has that instinct in the box to make the right movement and the right decision and it’s spontaneous, you feel it’s natural with him.”
