Aaron Ramsey spoke to the media after Arsenal's 3-0 win over West Ham United. Here's a transcript:
On the win…They have done really well this season, so we expected a tough game, and we certainly got that in the first half. We found them tough to break down but we got the goal at the end of the half and then in the second half it opened up a bit for us and we took full advantage of that. In the end it was a bit more convincing than the result might suggest.
On the opening goal…Yes, we tried to break them down and we did right at the end of the half. It was a great strike by Oli, any goalkeeper would have struggled saving that.
On his goal…I called for him [Giroud] to leave it and he did, then I saw him make the run so we played a one-two. I'm just happy that the ball went into the back of the net and we won the game.
On the game in Monaco…We need to score goals. So we will go there and try to score three or more goals and hopefully not concede any. That's our target and that's how we will approach it.We had a sloppy first leg and we've made it quite difficult for ourselves but it's not over yet. We are more than capable of scoring three goals. We scored three today and we believe in ourselves. We'll go into the game believing we can achieve that.
