Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has admitted that his side did not deserve a victory on Sunday against Norwich City at Carrow Road but feels their host deserved their point in the 1-1 draw.
Arsenal had capitalized on a defensive lapse when Ozil beat John Ruddy after the goalkeeper had scuffed his clearance, but Norwich struck back on the stroke of half-time when Grabban went past Gabriel Paulista to put the ball beyond Petr Cech from close range for 1-1.
And Ramsey who was making his first appearance since last month after injury expressed his delight at making a return and credited Norwich for their display.
“It was good to be back out here and to get some minutes under my belt. Hopefully I can get a few more games under my belt to get my fitness levels back up.
“It was obviously a bit disappointing to go a goal up and to concede that goal was a bit disappointing from our view, but to be fair they did well and they deserved to get a point out of the game. We just will have to up our game in our next match.
“They didn’t make it easy for us. They played a few long balls at times and it was difficult to get he ball down and get our pressing on but they did really well and probably a draw was a fair result.
“Every game is important at the moment, it is so tight so we don’t want to drop any points. We don’t want to have to play catch up but we will see at the end of the season and we will want to bounce back and get back to winning ways on Saturday.” Ramsey said as quoted on The Express.
The match was marred by fresh knocks for Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla and Laurent Koscielny who have now increased the numbers in Arsenal’s treatment room.
