Aaron Ramsey says Arsenal needed the draw against Chelsea, following their humiliation against Liverpool.
The Gunners fought for a goalless draw at the Stamford Bridge, ending a run of five straight defeats to Chelsea in the topflight.
Ramsey is quite pleased with how his teammates responded after the 4-0 loss to Liverpool.
“I think we needed that against a top team,” he told Sky Sports. “In recent years, we’ve struggled here, but we showed we’re capable of competing against the best, we showed solidarity and that we can create chances against them.
“We needed that after Liverpool.”
“I think we played higher up so if we did lose the ball we were able to get back into position quicker. Against Liverpool, that gap was a bit too big,” he said.
“We showed we really wanted to get a result and we got one.
“I think me and Granit have played a lot of games now and we have a good understanding. We had one bad half against Liverpool but I’ve felt we’ve done well in the rest of the games.
“We’ve dropped a few points already so it was important to come here and get a result.”
