Ramsey: We needed that


Aaron Ramsey says that yesterday’s 5-2 win over Everton was just the tonic the team required after last week’s defeat to Watford.

The Gunners had 30 attempts on goal (@7amkickoff stats here) and scored five times to ensure a beleaguered Everton’s miserable run continued and Ronald Koeman’s future as manager came under increased scrutiny.

Speaking after our first Premier League win on the road, he said, “We needed that, like you said it was our first away win of the season, we scored a few goals as well.

“Even though they’re not on the best run at the moment, it was always going to be quite a dangerous game because they needed a performance as well.

“It was important for us to match them from the beginning and we did that – full credit to the guys, we deserved that in the end.”

The Welshman, who netted the fourth goal, was also quick to praise the dynamic front three of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette.

“I think that with all the players we have in this squad we’re more than capable of producing performances,” he continued.

“With these guys they score goals, they create goals as well, so it was nice to have them back in the team and hopefully they can continue creating and scoring goals.”
