Arsenal news: Gunners star ‘happy’ with Spurs draw and believes it was a performance ‘we needed’

6 Mar

Aaron Ramsey believes Arsenal’s draw at Tottenham illustrated the Gunners’ hunger and was a performance to be happy with.


Ramsey scored his fifth league goal of the season to give his team the lead in the North London derby, but it took an Alexis Sanchez goal to salvage a point for the visitors.

Arsene Wenger’s team duly fell eight points behind leaders Leicester, who won the late kick off 1-0 at Watford, live on talkSPORT.

But Ramsey believes Arsenal’s point at White Hart Lane, achieved despite being reduced to 10-men when Francis Coquelin was sent off, was something to be please with.

“I think so,” he replied, in answer to a question about whether Arsenal had proved their hunger to be successful.

“We needed a result. We would have liked to have won the game but it was important just to get a result.

“We’ve had two defeats, so we’re happy to come away with a point in the end, considering the circumstances.

“It was important after back-to-back defeats to come here and try to get a result.

“I thought in the first half we did well, but they came out in the second half and got the two goals in quick succession. We were under the cosh a bit but we carried on and got the equaliser.

“I think we needed a performance like that after the couple of defeats that we’ve had. We needed to come here and get something and we managed to do that with 10 men.”
