Arsenal midfielder Ramsey loves derby atmosphere

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is excited about today's derby.

Ramsey says the atmosphere during last season's 5-2 north London derby victory at Emirates Stadium was one of the best he has ever experienced.

"We started off slowly and the atmosphere was a bit on edge," Ramsey told Arsenal Player. "But as soon as we got back into the game, it changed and it was one of the best at the stadium that I can remember.

"It is really exciting [to play in a derby], we look forward to these games - they're the ones you look for on the fixture list. It was great result at home last year, so hopefully it will be a similar sort of day this time.

"A lot of the staff remind all the players [of the importance of the game to the fans], and we get right up for it before the game. I am sure it will be no different on Saturday."
