Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey has admitted that he and his teammates are wary of a reaction from Sunderland in their Premier League clash. The Black Cats sustained a massive 8-0 defeat at the hands of Southampton last week but Ramsey feels that the Gunners will have to be at their best to earn a victory at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland will be looking to turn in a much improved performance in front of their home fans, and with Arsenal also not in the best of form, Ramsey says that it is going to be a tough game. The Welshman is a guaranteed starter with Jack Wilshere sidelined, and he will be vital if Arsenal are to secure a result.
I’ve scored there a couple of times in the past but hopefully we can go there and win another game, and get back to winning ways in the league.
I’m sure Sunderland’s manager and fans will be asking for a reaction and we’ll be expecting a tough game.
After losing by the margin they did the other day, they’re all going to be up for it and hopefully we can manage that and get on top early on to make them anxious and come away with a win.
Ramsey has still not found his form of the previous season, and neither have the Gunners, but today presents a good opportunity to change that. Arsenal are seventh in the League, and need the three points if they are to have any hopes of challenging Chelsea.
