Chelsea star Ramires: We deserved win over Arsenal
Chelsea star Ramires believes that the Blues deserved their 2-1 victory over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The Brazilian midfielder was controversially involved in Chelsea’s first goal, having allegedly fouled Francis Coquelin during the build up play.
Juan Mata subsequently opened the scoring after just six minutes, with a driven finish into the top-corner, before Frank Lampard doubled Chelsea's lead ten minutes later to send the Blues into half time with a comfortable lead.
Theo Walcott tried to inspire an Arsenal comeback with a goal just after the restart but Chelsea went on to claim three points and their first home win of 2013, which Ramires believes was a deserved result.
He said: "Whenever I go onto the field, I try to help my teammates get the wins.
"We had a great performance in the first half and deserved to win.
"A result like this, in a derby against a strong opponent, always gives even more morale for the competition."
Ramires is hoping for a call-up from new Brazil coach and former Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari on Tuesday, ahead of the Seleção’s upcoming international fixture with England.
