Aaron Ramsey's stats at Middlesbrough

on the importance of the win…Yeah, of course. They’re fighting for points at the bottom but we’re fighting to get back on track, so it was important to get the three points. I thought we played well, we responded well to the goal we conceded. We kept going, kept getting into dangerous positions and in the end we came away with the three points.

on three at the back…We’ve been working on it all week in training. It was a slight change to the system but I thought we dealt with it well tonight. We got our full backs in dangerous areas and we played well.

on hopes of the top four…Of course it’s going to be a difficult run but we’re up for the challenge. We had to start by getting the three points. I think we have seven games left now, so it’s important for us to take it a game at a time. I think we’re going to have to win them all - we’re capable of doing that but it’s going to take an enormous amount of concentration in every game.
