Arsenal Must Get In Eden Hazard’s Face, Says Midfielder Aaron Ramsey

Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey says Arsenal must get in Chelsea wizard playmaker Eden Hazard's face to stop him from inflicting damage in the FA Cup final.


The Gunners  meet Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday, Arsene Wenger's team bidding to salvage silverware from a season that saw them finish fifth in the English  Premier League, while Chelsea chase a famous double.


Arsenal won 3-0 versus Chelsea last September, but Antonio Conte's side  inflicted revenge in a 3-1 Stamford Bridge victory in February, Hazard netting an impressive individual goal.



"I think the way we started the [home] game in the first half was very good," Ramsey, who netted the winner in his side's 2014 FA Cup final win over Hull City, said to Arsenal Player.


"We won the game in the first half really. We were very quick, we counter-attacked well, closed them down, got about them and everything seemed to come together on that day.




"I'm sure something similar will be required to beat them in the final as well.


"It was a different game [away] and we perhaps let individuals have a bit too much space. Hazard went on a bit of a run and put the ball in the net.


"We can't let that happen again, we have to be right in his face and stop that at source." Ramsey added.
