It is by no means easy to forget the heavy defeat Arsenal suffered to Manchester United in their last Premier League fixture which ended up 8-2, but up-and-comer Aaron Ramsey is hoping the international break has allowed the gunners to mull things over and now have a fresh start.
With key additions to the squad, Arsenal face new-boys Swansea in their next fixture and with the likes of Arteta, Santos and Mertesacker hotly tipped to start. I am sure many are hoping the usual and new lads put in a good winning performance to show a statement of intent to our Premier League rivals.
Ramsey, on the topic of the upcoming tie against Swansea and the recent defeat at Manchester, told Sky Sports:
We want to put things right after our last result, hopefully we put in a really good performance and get back to winning ways. We have had a good think about things and it will be a fresh start now.
We have brought in some quality players, Arteta and Benayoun are two creative midfielders who are really comfortable on the ball and they will be great additions to the squad.
I think this weeks fixture offers a good opportunity for the Arsenal to gel and get comfortable with the new faces without having to cope with high quality and huge amounts of pressure, which will provide a good starting test for the team. It will be great to see Arsenal get back to winning ways!!
