Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes the Gunners are in a good position to finish the season strongly despite their disappointment at going out of the Champions League to Monaco.
Despite having come up just short in their historic bid to qualify from such a first-leg deficit there are some pluses to take form the game as the victory in Monaco, who had not conceded a goal at all during the Champions League group stages, was a 15th win from the last 18 matches in all competitions.
Arsenal are also into the semi-finals of the FA Cup at Wembley, they are 1.80 to win retain their trophy, where they face Championship side Reading, and could yet have a say in the Barclays Premier League title race, as they are now just a point behind second-placed Manchester City.
Ramsey, who scored a second goal on 79 minutes to pile on the pressure after Olivier Giroud’s first-half opener, is confident for the challenges ahead.
“We could take some positives from the Monaco performance and hopefully we can get back on track against Newcastle this weekend and we can keep that running run we are on,” the Wales midfielder said.
“Many things can happen in the Premier League still, with many twists and turns.
“We will be looking to concentrate on ourselves and take full advantage of the games we do have left.
“We are also in a good position in the FA Cup. We have Reading (in the semi-finals), which we will feel confident of going through.”
