Arsenal must be more clinical in front of goal, warns Aaron Ramsey
Arsenal must become more clinical in front of goal, according to midfielder Aaron Ramsey
Aaron Ramsey says Arsenal must improve their finishing after the Gunners were held to a 1-1 draw by newly-promoted Leicester City.
Alexis Sanchez scored his first league goal but the visitors’ lead lasted less than two minutes before Leonardo Ulloa headed an equaliser.
And midfielder Ramsey feels that Arsene Wenger’s men must put away their chances, with Yaya Sanogo spurning a number of good opportunities.
“We just weren’t clinical enough in front of goal today to convert the chances into goals,” said Ramsey.
“They played well and defended very well, we had a lot of the ball and had some opportunities to break and chances to score but we didn’t take them.
“The goal that we conceded as well, we switched off from a throw-in, they switched sides and scored – it could have been avoided. The overall feeling is disappointing.
“It’s difficult coming to Leicester or any other teams who are just promoted. They wanted to prove a point and they want to prove that they’re good enough to be here and it was difficult today.
“They closed us down really well, having said that we still created chances and we still got in little pockets where we could of hurt them a bit more on a different day. We’ll move on from this.”
