Aaron Ramsey has revealed that a team meeting last week played a part in ensuring Arsenal took three points home from the Stadium of Light on Saturday.
Thierry Henry’s 91st minute goal completed a 15 minute comeback and the Welsh captain says that keeping going right until the final whistle was something they had discussed.
“We had a meeting last week about doing well for the rest of the season,” he told Arsenal Player, “and one of the points that came to us was to never give up in the game.
“That was the case against Sunderland, and we showed it against Aston Villa too. There was a great atmosphere in the dressing room after the game and everyone was enjoying it. We were 1-0 down with just over 10 minutes to go, so it was a great win for us.”
And while he was delighted to get on the scoresheet himself, Ramsey was equally happy for Thierry Henry who marked his last Premier League appearance for the club with that injury time winner.
“It was nice for me to get on the scoresheet as well as Thierry getting the winner. It’s been a fantastic period for him coming back to the Club he supports and has done so much for. It’s a great story for him so far.”
The goal was Ramsey’s 3rd of the season and his first since his last gasp winner against Marseille in October, so let’s hope this opens the floodgates for him a little bit.
