Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey hasn't minced his words over their poor start to the season.

The Gunners face Sunderland today at the wrong end of the table.

Ramsey told Arsenal Player: "It's been a really disappointing start to the season, there's no question about that. We've had a few decisions against us in games and we've had to pay for those. It has been a difficult start and one that we hope we can turn around pretty quickly.

"We've had a few sendings-off in games which have affected the game and ultimately we've paid the price for that so that's a few points lost. I think defensively as a team at times we've conceded sloppy goals. Hopefully now we can start defending properly and be more solid as a team. I think going forward we're still a threat, still dangerous. We just need a few things to improve on and we'll be fine."
