Ramsey reveals how Arsenal can stop Hazard – ‘We need to be ‘right in his face’

Date Posted,May 25, 2017

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has identified the key to beating Chelsea in the FA Cup final and says they need to be right in Eden Hazard’s ‘face’ if they are stop the Belgian star stealing all the headlines.

Ramsey is hoping history can repeat itself and the Gunners can repeat their impressive 3-0 home win over the Premier League champions to secure another piece of silverware.

The Gunners star knows the threat that Hazard can pose to his side and says he was instrumental in helping Chelsea beat them 3-1 at Stamford Bridge back in February which included a superb individual strike.

But Ramsey says they have been working hard on how to stop the Chelsea forward getting on the scoresheet and feels it is crucial they get off to a good start at Wembley.

Ramsey, speaking on the club’s official website, said: “I think the way we started the home game in the first half was very good.

“We were very quick, we counter attacked well, closed them down, got about them.

“It was a different game away and we perhaps let individuals have a bit too much space. Hazard went on a bit of a run and put the ball in the net.

“We can’t let that happen again, we have to be right in his face and stop that at source.

“We’ll have a chat with some of the staff for what is expected of us. We’ll all be ready and tuned in to what we’ve got to do to stop that.”
