Ramsey: City win sends out a statement



Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has said that their 2-1 win over Manchester City sends out a statement of what the Gunners are about this season.

Arsene Wenger’s men defeated the Citizen to maintain second place on the Premier League table, two points behind table-toppers Leicester City.

“It was [a big win] and there was a lot riding on that so we needed to win,” he told Arsenal Player, reports arsenal.com.

“Leicester had a bit of a gap before Monday but we have closed that so we are delighted. We wanted to win this game and I think it sends out a statement of what we are all about this year.

“It was important for us to score first and then follow it up with the goal on half-time - that was nice so we had that little bit of a cushion. We knew they were a quality team and would have their moments and for periods of the second half they did. They managed to score one, but we held on.

“There were a few tired bodies out there towards the end because we have had a few tough games in a short period of time and that showed in the last 20 minutes. We did well to hold on and get the win.

“It is still really tight, we are still a couple of games away from halfway [through the season] so there’s a lot of football to be played but we have definitely had a good start and hopefully we can continue this over the busy Christmas period.”
