Aaron Ramsey: Arsenal can catch Chelsea and win the Premier League title

Aaron Ramsey believes Arsenal still have a shout at winning the Premier League title – despite the club trailing leaders Chelsea by 13 points.

The Gunners have lost three of their last five in all competitions and look unlikely to end their 13-year wait for a title.

Boss Arsene Wenger has come under increasing pressure to deliver a title and the Frenchman has reportedly turned down a £30million offer to manage in China.

But Ramsey believes the title race is only a couple of results away from being thrown wide open again.

He said: “There’s still a lot of football to be played, stranger things have happened in the game before.

“Chelsea have quite a gap at the moment, but it only takes a couple of games and everybody’s right back in there again.

Arsenal have to get back to winning ways and compete again and go on a run.”

Ramsey was speaking at the launch of Don’t Take Me Home, the documentary charting Wales’ thrilling run the semi-finals of last summer’s European Championship.

Wales are now bidding for their first appearance at a World Cup since 1958, but trail the Republic of Ireland and Serbia in Group D.

And Ramsey concedes he and his team-mates are feeling the pressure after their heroics in France.

He said: “We’re unused to this sort of pressure before. We were the underdogs we were going into games with teams coming at us.

“But now we’ve got that respect, we’ve got that pressure on us to qualify again because we did so well in the Euros.

“There’s pressure on ourselves as well, we want to make that happen, we want to create more history with this team and we have the players and the team to be able to do that.

“It was nice to go furthest of the Home Nations and we hope we can continue doing it over the years.”
