Cape Town - Arsenal's Welsh star, Aaron Ramsey, reflected on a missed opportunity to beat Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Ramsey responded to six issues from the game after the top of the table clash ended goalless, reportsArsenal.com.

On whether Arsenal could have won…

I think so. We created a few chances, got into some dangerous areas but didn’t quite take the opportunities when we did get in there. They were very well organised and were happy with the point in the end.

On whether Chelsea are the best at frustrating other teams…

Probably this season they’ve done really well in the bigger games where they’ve kept their shape and frustrated teams like they did to us. On another day we may have scored a couple and won the game.

On whether finishing second would be progress…

I think so. It’s going to be quite difficult for Chelsea to drop the points that we need to go top. Second probably is progression from last season definitely and from a couple of seasons where we have been battling for fourth. We’re in another FA Cup final so maybe you can say that’s an improvement on last season.

On Chelsea’s defending…

Full credit to them, they defended well. They came here not to lose the game and they did that.

On chances not falling to the right players…

I think so. A chance fell to Mertesacker which he put wide and the ball went through Mesut’s legs after. Little things like that where on a different day they might have dropped straight into one of our paths and we would have been celebrating a victory. It wasn’t to be. They defended really well and we can take some positives out of that.

On whether Chelsea will be worthy champions…

Yes I think so. If that’s the case and they go on to win, they’ve only lost twice this season, so their consistency has been the best and that’s what you need. They’ve definitely been the best team in the league.
