Aaron Ramsey: Arsenal need to perfom better in the first half

Arsenal fell to some heavy defeats last season losing away 6-0 to Chelsea and 6-3 to City.

Though injuries also played a big part on Arsenal's title challenge, Ramsey still thinks Arsenal need to be more smarter in the opening quarter of games.


"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 said.

"Everyone was really excited and looking forward to it, thinking that we've got a great opportunity. Unfortunately it wasn't to be. "I believe the outcomes far from home against the supposed bigger teams have been destructive which's exactly what's cost us in the end

"In all of those games we conceded early on and going to these places is hard, never mind going a goal down [near the beginning] I think it is essential just to remain in the game and frustrate them.

"With the quality we have, we constantly understand we can create chances. The main thing is just to remain in the game in the very first half and it will open a lot more in the second half - and ideally we can take full advantage.".
