Gunners midfielder says defeat at the Etihad has not knocked confidence.
Aaron Ramsey insists Arsenal could have scored six in last week’s hammering at Manchester City and says the defeat has not left the Gunners lacking belief.
A rampant City tore through Arsenal at will in the 6-3 win at the Etihad Stadium but the visitors had two goals wrongly ruled out for offside and felt they should have had a penalty.
Arsene Wenger side remain top of the table ahead but could slip to fourth in they lose to title challengers Chelsea on Monday.
Ramsey, however, has stressed the result at Eastlands has not knocked the players’ confidence and says Arsenal could easily have scored as many as the hosts on the day.
“I don’t think it has shaken us,” Ramsey told The Daily Mail.
“To concede that many goals was disappointing for the team, especially when we’ve defended so well this season. We still created a lot of opportunities and we could have had six goals as well.
“We’re also still top of the league, and therefore in a great position. We’ve dropped a few points in the past couple of games and we are still top, and that just shows what a good start we’ve had. Hopefully we’ll learn from this little blip and put it right as soon as possible.”
