Aaron Ramsey in action against Chelsea

Aaron Ramsey impressed against Chelsea on Sunday to the point that some broadcasters named him as their man of the match.

After the game, the Wales midfielder spoke to the media. Here’s what he said:

on the performance…
It was a good performance, one that we needed against a top team. We played really well today and it was a performance [where we were] together. We showed that we can compete against the best.

on if the performance was a statement…
Yeah, of course. We needed this, we were due one and we showed today that we re able to come away from home and compete against the best teams in the league. We can take a lot of positives from this today and hopefully have a successful season.

on confidence…
We’ve shown today that we’re more than capable of competing against some of the best teams in the league. It’s important now to capitalise on this result. We’ve got a couple of home games now, hopefully we can win them and put ourselves in a good position again.

on a healthy rivalry…
Yeah, it’s a London derby and it’s always got that bit of edge to it. We dealt with it well.

on his chance…
I saw it open up for me and tried to get it out [from between my feet] and unfortunately it hit the post. I felt we played really well today. The performance was solid and we showed what we’re capable of doing.

on how good the team were…
We played really well today. We were together out there, everybody fought for each other and we showed what we’re capable of doing away from home against a top team. Hopefully we can continue that throughout the season.
