Aaron Ramsey scored the third goal in the Gunners 3-1 against Sunderland. The Welshman who has just recently recovered from a hamstring injury was playing in the centre for the Gunners, making a change from his usual position on the right hand side.
This is what Ramsey had to say on the importance of the win, the title place and whether he enjoyed the change in position:
“Yes it was very important to get the win after losing one game and drawing another and it was important to get back to winning ways and close the gap on the top and it was nice to do it at home in front of the fans.
“It is really close at the moment. Teams are taking points off each other so it is going to be tight all the way through and it is important to keep ourselves in the race for this busy time and into the New Year and it was a good way to start ahead of December.
“It felt really good today. I feel a lot more comfortable and it suited my game a lot better, I could time my runs into the box and get on the end of things and I could have had two or three goals but at the end of the day I’m happy.”
