Aaron Ramsey says Arsenal’s chemistry is the strongest it has been during his time at the club.
The Wales midfielder joined the Gunners in 2008 and has established himself as a key member of Arsene Wenger’s first-team squad alongside academy graduates Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Wojciech Szczesny.
Ramsey has helped Arsenal lift back-to-back FA Cups and the 24-year-old believes the Gunners’ togetherness can lead them to future success.
"The way the players get on with each other, approach each other and fight for one another on the pitch it has never been as good as it is now"
“Most of the players here have been together for a long period of time,” he said. “I have been here seven years now and the chemistry and the way the players get on with each other, approach each other and fight for one another on the pitch it has never been as good as it is now.
“This team has a lot of quality and we have won a few things now. This team can push onto bigger and better things, and I hope we can show people this season how close a tight-knit group we are.
“We know we have a good squad and we are more than capable of challenging anybody on our day but the main thing is to go into each game individually and try to come out on top. We have had two successful years when we have won things and we will try to see where that takes us this season and I’m sure we will be there or thereabouts.”
Arsenal’s next test is against Liverpool on Monday, and Ramsey admits the Gunners can take confidence from last season’s 4-1 win at Emirates Stadium.
“It is one of those games you always look for when the fixtures come out,” he said. “You look for the bigger games and this is where you want to test yourself against the better players and this is a fixture that will have that.
“It’s going to be tough, we did well against them at home last season and they will be looking to do us over from what we did last year. Hopefully we can do our best to avoid that and if we play the way we know we can I’m sure we will come out on top."
