Aaron Ramsey says the traumatic injury he suffered against Stoke City three years ago is well and truly behind him.
The Welsh midfielder suffered a broken leg that kept him out of action for almost nine months. However, the 22-year-old has been in scintillating form so far this season, scoring six goals in all competitions.
Those memories have gone, especially playing at home is a different gameAaron Ramsey
Ramsey admits it took time for him to reach the top of his game again and pinpoints the final months of last season as a turning point for his form.
"I feel like the back end of last season I was getting my confidence back and I felt good again," said Ramsey. "This season I've been more composed in front of goal and putting things away. I'm delighted with the way I've been playing now for some time and I just want to continue that.
"I think from Christmas onwards last season I feel I was getting back to my best again and that's when I felt like I was confident and getting stuck in again. I was playing in the middle which helped whereas before that I was playing all over the shop."
Ramsey will be looking to continue his recent hot streak when Stoke visit north London on Sunday and he insists the bad memories of playing the Potters have gone.
"Those memories have gone, especially playing at home is a different game. I think under Mark Hughes they've changed their style of play a bit, they've had a good start to the season.
"I'm sure they are still going to be quite physical by pressing us and closing us down but we're at home and we will be switched on so hopefully we can get the result that we're looking for."
