Arsene Wenger: 'Aaron Ramsey benefiting from back three'

Arsene Wenger: 'Aaron Ramsey benefiting from back three'

And both of them have played well, and both of them have a great team spirit as well.

Wenger was forced into a change as the impressive Oxlade-Chamberlain went off with what appeared to be a hamstring issue - Hector Bellerin on in his place.

Stoke hit back though a controversial 67th-minute Peter Crouch effort, which saw him appear to divert the ball in with his arm, before goals from Alexis Sanchez in the 76th minute and Giroud 10 minutes from time wrapped things up for the visitors.

Former Barcelona star Sanchez then supplied an inch-perfect cross to Aaron Ramsey, who headed across goal to give Giroud an easy chance to head home from close range. The Gunners are four points behind third-placed Liverpool but have a game in hand, meaning they could still sneak into the top four if the Reds drop points in either of their remaining two games.

"That's Alexis", Wenger said. "I am always harsh with the one who doesn't play". "But we were united and we have to stay like that, strong together". We concentrate on our games, we go game-by-game and we have to win all of them to give ourselves a chance. Now three points off fourth spot Arsenal will hope to make it three wins in three, but before we look into their trip to Stoke it's time to pick a man of the match from the Southampton game. The first half was quite even, but we were focused and determined.




"We certainly aren't fazed by Arsenal, despite them coming into the game on the back of a really strong run of results", Hughes told a news conference on Friday.

Despite the influential Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain going off injured in the first half, Wenger's side were still in control and dominated possession, despite the Saints showing more attacking intent than they did against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

The second came in the closing stages as substitute Giroud made certain of the points, heading home Ramsey's nod across the box after more good work from Sanchez. We did well being patient in the first half. "We know we can only win our games.so let's just continue".

"That support always helps, we know that, and it's important for us to play well in order to deserve any plaudits we get - that is certainly our intention".
