Champions League fate is in Arsenal's hands - Ramsey

Champions League fate is in Arsenal's hands - Ramsey The Gunners must beat Olympiacos by two clear goals or score at least three times to have a chance of qualification and the Welshman is hopeful of gaining a result

Aaron Ramsey insists that Arsenal's Champions League fate is in their own hands as they prepare to face Olympiacos in their final group game.

The Gunners are three points adrift of the second-placed Greek side and must win by either two clear goals or score at least three times on Wednesday to give themselves a chance of finishing in the top two in Group F.

Ramsey, whose side lost their opening two fixtures in the group, believes that his side will create opportunities and has urged his team-mates to turn in the performance required of them.

"We will always create opportunities – just hopefully we can stop Olympiacos, keep a clean sheet and grab a couple of goals ourselves," he told reporters.

"It was never going to be easy after the start we had in Europe but we have done well to come back into the position that we find ourselves in and it is in our hands – we know what we have to do."

Ramsey was on target in Arsenal's 3-1 Premier League win against Sunderland on Saturday and he hopes that they can take confidence from their victory over Sam Allardyce's side.

The Wales midfielder added: "We have been here a few times before. It is really difficult, we have come up short a lot of the times in Europe. But we know what we have to do and we believe we have enough quality to create the opportunities and score.
