Arsenal showed their nerve to see off Everton at Goodison Park on Wednesday, according to Aaron Ramsey.

Thomas Vermaelen’s early header ensured Arsène Wenger’s side took home all three points to climb above Tottenham in the Premier League table.

Ramsey started his first game since mid-February following his recovery from an ankle injury and praised the team’s attitude on a testing night against David Moyes’ team.

“It was great, we battled well and it came off,” Ramsey told Arsenal Player. “The back four did a wonderful job and kept a good line. As a team I think we kept our composure and looked very solid so overall we are delighted with the win and hopefully we can keep it going.

“Overall I thought we did very well in the first half an hour and created a few opportunities. Then the crowd started to get behind them and they started to get a few tackles in.

“It was always going to be a tough place to come and they proved that in the end. But we dealt with it really well and I think we deserved the points in the end.

“The results definitely went our way on the night and we are carrying on our good form of late. Hopefully we can just continue to do this now until the end of the season.

“We have proved what we are capable of achieving and how motivated we are to finish third. We are definitely doing that at the moment but we are going about our own business and hopefully we can continue it.”
