Ramsey scored his eighth goal in nine matches to add to an earlier strike from teenager Serge Gnabry, and the Gunners held on after Ben Davies pulled a goal back for the hosts.
The Welsh international believes they are capable of continuing the form which has seen them become league leaders.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said:
That’s our target. We have a lot of quality. We’ve had a lot of injuries recently but we’ve managed to dig in and put a load of wins together and hopefully now we get players back and we’re in with a shout.
Swansea is a difficult place to come but we’ve passed the ball around really well. We had to dig in and stay solid and try not to concede an early goal. We’ve done that, we’ve started to defend as a unit and the goals have come in the second half.
We knew it was going to be a tough last 20 minutes but we managed to dig in and get the win. In the first half we tried to press them a bit too high up but in the second half we let them have the ball, we waited for them to come into our half and defended quite deep so we could get them on the counter-attack, we broke with pace and quality and managed to gain a few times.

Ramsey scored the second goal in the 62nd minute, and says he is delighted with his own goal scoring form. He added:
I felt like throughout my career I’ve been getting into these positions but I was perhaps a bit rash in front of goal. I’m a lot more composed now, I’m feeling confident and things are starting to click into place quite nicely.
The 22 year old has been in excellent form this season and continued that form this weekend. He was poor in the early stages but found his feet and marked another superb all round display with another performance of spit and polish as he set up Gnabry for the opening goal before doubling Arsenal’s lead with an emphatically taken second goal.
His goal scoring record has also been superb this season with 8 goals in all competitions and is the top scorer for Arsenal and what makes this stat more impressive is the fact that he scored only 12 goals in the past 7 years. This improvement should be credited to his composure because he was always getting into these positions throughout his career but just couldn’t find the finishing touch which he is developed this season.
The Gunners have a great chance of winning the League, although it seems a little premature, if we can maintain the current form and pull away at the top it would heap the pressure on the other contenders who are already struggling with just 6 games into this campaign. Ramsey’s form is already proving to be a game changer for Arsenal and if he can continue this form I don’t think the end of the trophy drought is far away.
