Arsenal's midfield linchpin Aaron Ramsey has declared that the Gunners have Champions League qualification in their own hands ahead of tomorrow's nights Group F clash with Marseille at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners moved top of Group F with victory away to Borussia Dortmund earlier this month, a famous win which came courtesy of a solitary header from the Welshman.
Ramsey believes that avenging a home defeat to Dortmund has put a place in the last 16 in their own hands, targeting three points against Marseille to move Arsene Wenger's men without touching distance of the knockout stages.
He told the club's official website: "It was important to get the win over there [in Dortmund], having lost the previous game at home.
“There was a bit of pressure on us to go there and get a result which we did ever so well. It was vital for us, and we're now in control again.
“We're back in a strong position so let's take in the next game and hopefully get the win there and put ourselves in an even stronger position. Hopefully we can get the three points we need."
Wenger's side stand to take a stranglehold on Group F if they can condemn Marseille to a fifth successive Champions League defeat, with Borussia Dortmund facing Napoli in a crunch clash at the same time tomorrow night.
Ramsey is highly likely to be a figure in Arsenal's attempts to record a second victory at the Emirates in three days, after enjoying a wonderful start to the campaign which includes 11 goals for the Gunners in all competitions.
