Aaron Ramsey has praised his team-mates after Wednesday night's "magnificent win" in Marseille.

Goals from Theo Walcott and the Welsh midfielder secured Arsenal's 10th successive away victory in all competitions.

Ramsey was delighted to begin Group F in style and is now hoping that the team can embark on a consistent run at the Emirates.

"I'm feeling good at the moment. I'm feeling confident so hopefully this will continue"

"It was a magnificent win for us to come here and get the three points," he told Arsenal Player. "We did it a few seasons ago as well. It's a tough place to come to. The pitch wasn't the best - it was very sticky and dry and we had to continue to try and play our game. It paid off in the end and we got the win which we're delighted with.

"We've tried to defend as well as we can as a team. I feel like the team has grown much stronger in that department over the last couple of seasons. We showed that if we continue to try to play the way that we want to, something will happen in the end. It did and we took our chances.

"It's vital to get back into the swing of things in the league. We play against Stoke who have changed their style a bit under Mark Hughes. They've had a good start to the season so we'll have to be switched on, get a good recovery in the next couple of days and hopefully get another win in the league."

Ramsey's goal at Stade Velodrome was his sixth of the season - and is already the in-form midfielder's most productive campaign in an Arsenal shirt.

"I think I'm just a lot more composed in front of goal now," he explained. "Throughout my career I've been in those positions where I could have scored a goal but I've probably lacked that composure to put the ball away. I've been a bit rash at times. I'm feeling good at the moment. I'm feeling confident so hopefully this will continue."
