Arsenal midfielder Ramsey planning on professional showing at Olympiakos

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has urged his side to put in a professional showing for their must-win Champions League encounter against Olympiakos.

Arsenal travel to Greece to square off against the Athens outfit in the final group game of the Champions League on Wednesday and the Gunners need a two-goal victory in order to qualify for the knock out phase of the competition.

It is clear to see that Arsenal have a lot at stake heading into the clash and ahead of the encounter, Ramsey is looking for a professional display from the Gunners, who were only ok in their eventual 3-1 win over Sunderland on the weekend with the Wales international alongside Mathieu Flamini in midfield.

Ramsey said: "It is a bit easier at home because we have the majority of the ball and Flamini normally stays behind so we have that bit of license. But in the Champions League game I will have to be a bit more professional in the way we manage the game.

"We will always create opportunities - just hopefully we can stop them, keep a clean sheet and grab a couple of goals ourselves. It was never easy after the start we had 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."
