Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey wants his team-mates to push on from their victory against Wigan Athletic by beating Newcastle United on Sunday and securing their Champions League position.

The Gunners are currently sitting in fourth after beating Wigan 4-1 on Tuesday night and they are just one point above rivals Tottenham with both clubs having two games left to play.

On the final day of the season Arsenal have to travel to St James' Park and Tottenham host Sunderland, as both teams look set to fight it out for the final Champions League spot.

The table is how it is after the Gunners smashed FA Cup winners Wigan at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night thanks to a brace from Lukas Podolski and then goals from Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey.

Despite not being on the scoresheet, it was Santi Cazorla that stole the show, as it was he who set up all four goals.

Ramsey believes the side panicked when the game was all-square, but he feels their true quality showed in the second half - and he insists the team are ready to push on and secure Champions League qualification by beating Newcastle on the final day of the season.

"We got the early goal and then we sort of panicked a bit. They showed what good form they have been in of late when they got a goal back," the Wales international commented. "In the end, we did the job, we got the win and it's the perfect way to finish the season here. We have one game left to finish off to get that Champions League place.

"This is what we love to do - play football. Every game there is a lot of pressure, this game was no different tonight, we had to win to keep ourselves in the driving seat and we managed to do that.

"We are looking forward to going to Newcastle, finishing the job off and getting into the Champions League next season."
