Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has claimed that our current form isn’t good enough for a club of our stature after we lost back-to-back games over the past week, Goal reports.
Ramsey was left at home for our trip to Zagreb on Wednesday night as a second-string side produced a poor performance in a game in which we played large parts with 10 men.
Our discipline came under scrutiny once again during Saturday’s clash at Stamford Bridge with Gabriel and Santi Cazorla shown their marching orders by Mike Dean.
Ramsey accepts that the red cards influence the game, but he’s disappointed at our current form.

“That set-piece has cost us but we tried our best out there and we paid the price from the sending off in the end,” Ramsey was quoted as saying.
“I’m sure he’ll (Gabriel) learn from that and we have to move on and put things right on Wednesday.
“It’s not good enough for a club like Arsenal to lose two games in a row. Hopefully, now we can put things right on Wednesday.”
Ramsey has been below-par this season and clearly feels that his talents are being wasted on the right-wing, which is a position he’s consistently filled this calendar year.
However, with Santi Cazorla set to serve his one-match suspension as we take on Spurs on Wednesday night, perhaps Ramsey can prove to Arsene Wenger that he deserves a central berth.
We cannot afford to lose a third game in succession, especially not to that mob.
