ARSENE WENGER has urged his Arsenal players to win the title for Aaron Ramsey, who broke his leg during the 3-1 win at Stoke City on Saturday.

The Welshman suffered a double fracture to his leg just after the hour mark, with the score still tied at 1-1. The incident brought back memories of Eduardo's horrific leg break at Birmingham City back in 2008. The Gunners went on to lose that game and the title, as they ended the season in third, but the side rallied and late goals from Cesc Fabregas and Thomas Vermaelen sealed a win that takes the side to within three points of leaders Chelsea.

Wenger was delighted by the response of his players after all of them were visibly shocked by the result of Ryan Shawcross's tackle on Ramsey, for which the Potters man received a straight red card.

“It will be tight until the end,” Wenger said of the Premier League title race. “But this group is so strong mentally and have a unity so this will give us one more reason to fight until the end and do it for him (Ramsey).

“We had some other problems two years ago. But on Saturday we had a midfield of Nasri, Fabregas, Ramsey, Song, Eboue. They have an average of 20 or 21-years-old. Up front, Bendtner is 21-years-old, At their age, to handle the game like they did is absolutely remarkable.”
