Midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes Arsenal are ready to meet their "big month" head on.

The Gunners host Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City on Sunday to start a run of six potential crunch fixtures before the end of January - with a Champions League last-16 tie against Bayern Munich also looming on the not-too-distant horizon.

Wales international Ramsey, however, insists the squad have the strength of character to cope with such a demanding schedule. "It is a big month for us. We play some teams who are above us [in the Premier League] and we have an FA Cup game as well, so it is important to take these opportunities," Ramsey said on Arsenal Player.
