Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta are both predicting more Arsenal silverware success after they picked up the Community Shield by beating Manchester City 3-0 at Wembley.
The Welsh midfielder grabbed the Gunners’ second goal as they put the Premier League champions to the sword, putting their ‘big game’ problems from last season behind them.
Arsenal lost heavily to Chelsea, Liverpool and their Community Shield opponents during last year’s campaign but Ramsey says they are now ready to fix up their problems to bring more trophies to North London. ‘Wembley’s not been a bad place for me or Santi (Cazorla) so we want to play here every week,’ Ramsey said. ‘In these games last season we have been guilty of conceding early on. It’s difficult enough so it was important today for us to stay in the game, wait for them too open up, and we capitalised on that.’
And Ramsey says Arsenal are in the best shape they he has seen in his six years at The Emirates. ‘We’re more than capable – the team has a good team spirit. We need to improve on the big games so hopefully now we’ve learnt our lesson, we can go into this season and have a good go.
