Ramsey: Results Away Against Title Challengers Damaged Our Chances

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has given his reasons why the Gunners could not mount a serious title challenge last season.

The Welshman stated that Arsene Wenger’s men should have done better against the bigger clubs when playing away from the Emirates.

“We got off to a really good start, that’s something we had been lacking over the last few years. We came out of the blocks firing and were top of the league for long periods of the season,” Ramsey told the Daily Express.

“Everyone was really excited and looking forward to it, thinking that we’ve got a great opportunity. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be.

“I think the results away from home against the so-called bigger teams have been damaging and that’s what’s cost us in the end.

“In all of those games we conceded early on and going to these places is difficult, never mind going a goal down [near the start]. I think it’s important just to stay in the game and frustrate them.

“With the quality we have, we always know we can create opportunities. The main thing is just to stay in the game in the first half and it will open up a lot more in the second half – and hopefully we can take full advantage.”
