Victory for Arsenal takes them back within 10 points of leaders Leicester, although with time now very much against them Ramsey offered an honest assessment of the North London outfit's recent disappointing run.
"We played with a lot of belief and intensity tonight and made a lot of chances," he told Sky Sports News. "We haven't been at that standard of late and we needed that level of performance for us and our fans.
"We needed that. We played with a real purpose. We have been frustrated with the way we have been playing but that is what we are capable of. It may be too little too late but we keep going."
Arsenal face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in their next outing, ahead of Leicester's home match with Swansea City later the same day.
