Midfielder Aaron Ramsey has backed Arsenal to bounce back from their Manchester City mauling.

The Gunners remained top after their 6-3 loss at the Etihad, but they head into the weekend knowing if results go against them they could be as low as fourth should they lose to Chelsea on Monday.

Ramsey feels the defeat has done no permanent damage though.

"I don't think it has shaken us," the 22-year-old told the Daily Mail. "To concede that many goals was disappointing for the team, especially when we've defended so well this season. We still created a lot of opportunities and we could have had six goals as well.

"We're also still top of the league, and therefore in a great position.

"We've dropped a few points in the past couple of games and we are still top, and that just shows what a good start we've had. Hopefully we'll learn from this little blip and put it right as soon as possible."
