These are not our words, but those of Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey who claims the group of players at the Emirates now is good enough to win the Premier League title.

‘Every club brings in new faces and a few leave,’ he said.

‘Even with this group of players now I believe if everyone was fit in the season we would have a great opportunity of competing for the Premier League.

‘This team has come on a lot over the last few years and if we can get off to a good start next season we will challenge.’

The Gunners star player also spoke of how deighted he was to be a part of what was happening at the club.

‘The club is in a good place where they can afford not to let players go, we’re building on this team rather than seeing players leaving.

‘It is a nice feeling and means that the group can stick together. The understanding is already there, so it can only get stronger.’
