Aaron Ramsey feels Arsenal can make a "fresh start" to their Barclays Premier League campaign with victory over new-boys Swansea at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The Gunners have suffered a nightmare opening to the domestic campaign, which followed the sale of key men Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri - with Arsene Wenger's squad left reeling from their 8-2 humiliation by Manchester United at Old Trafford before the international break.

However, with the new signings of South Korea captain Park Chu-young, Mikel Arteta, defensive duo Per Mertesacker and Andre Santos as well as a season-long loan move for Yossi Benayoun, Ramsey maintains there are plenty of reasons to be positive, and said: "We want to put things right after our last result."

He added: "Hopefully we put in a really good performance and get back to winning ways.

"We have had a good think about things and it will be a fresh start now."

Ramsey told reporters: "We have brought in some quality players, Arteta and Benayoun are two creative midfielders who are really comfortable on the ball and they will be great additions to the squad."

Swansea were thumped 4-0 at Manchester City in their first game in the English top flight - and have yet to score a league goal despite battling to draws with Wigan and Sunderland.

Ramsey, however, is not expecting the Welsh team to simply lie down at Emirates Stadium.

"I saw last season, when I played against Swansea for Cardiff, that they are a good footballing team and like to pass the ball," said the former Bluebirds youngster, who spent a short loan spell back at his old club in January.

"It will be a good footballing game but hopefully we come out on top and get all three points."
