Wales international Ramsey scored the extra-time winner as Arsenal came from two goals down to beat Hull City 3-2 at Wembley back in May to secure a first trophy since 2005.

Ramsey believes that Arsenal are now in a position to build on their FA Cup triumph, with Arsene Wenger’s side last winning the Premier League title in 2004.

"The FA Cup was the first thing we’ve won with this team," said Ramsey. "It could be the most important one.

"It was definitely a great feeling, after winning it, and we want that feeling again and we want it as quickly as possible.

"We want to try and win things this year and we believe we have a great opportunity of doing that.

"We always felt we were heading in the right direction. We had a lot of changes over the years with big players leaving for other clubs but we are a settled team, one where everyone gets on with each other and enjoys each other's company, and I think you can see that on the pitch.

"We have got over that hurdle of not having won anything for many years, we have finally put that to bed and won the FA Cup. Now we want to build on that."

Meanwhile, Ramsey has also confirmed he would welcome the chance to captain Arsenal, with current club skipper Thomas Vermaelen expected to leave the Emirates Stadium before the transfer window closes.

He added: "It was a great honour for me to captain Wales and to captain a club like Arsenal would be an amazing achievement.

"Probably like the rest of the players here, I wouldn’t turn down the chance of doing that."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
