Ramsey realises Arsenal challenge

Published Add your comment

Aaron Ramsey admits he has been frustrated by Arsenal's form so far this season, and is determined to get things back on track as quickly as possible.

The Gunners had been looking to find their Barclays Premier League momentum in last Sunday's north London derby, but after suffering a 2-1 defeat against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, Arsene Wenger's side must now wait until after the international break to start climbing the table.

"It's been a difficult time for my club," said Ramsey as he prepares for Wales' Euro 2012 qualifier at home to Switzerland on Friday night.

"It's been quite frustrating so far with the problems that have been happening in the last few games. We have not produced results we're capable of."


Arsenal currently lie 15th in the table, having lost four of their opening seven domestic fixtures, including that 8-1 thrashing at the hands of Manchester United, which has caused many to question the players' credentials to qualify for the UEFA Champions League this campaign - a competition the club has been involved with in each of the past 14 years.

Ramsey accepts that the early-season criticisms have been fair, but insists that the squad is capable of rising to the challenge of recovering the 2011-12 campaign.

"Arsenal are one of the top clubs in England and where we are at the moment is totally unacceptable," said the midfielder. "Hopefully things for Arsenal can turn around pretty quickly.

"We need to start winning on a regular basis and getting higher up the table."
