Arsène Wenger says he doesn't want to put too much pressure on Aaron Ramsey despite the Welshman's spectacular run of form.

Ramsey scored a brace against his old club Cardiff City on Saturday to increase his goal tally to 14 in all competitions this season.

But Wenger insists he will give Ramsey a rest when the time is right.

I believe he's happy that he won the game, that he came back and played well

"I have to treat him like all the players and give them a breather when they need it" said Wenger. " I don't want to put too much pressure on his shoulders and we have a game that is based on team play.

"That's why I think we have to respect our game - once we do that, anybody can score. We have seen [Mathieu] Flamini [against Cardiff] - he scored a goal. It's the first one in five years.

"When the team plays well anybody can score."

Ramsey opted not to celebrate his two goals against the Bluebirds and Wenger praised the way the midfielder conducted himself.

"I believe he's happy that he won the game, that he came back and played well," he said. "But as well he has shown respect for Wales and I have a big respect for the crowd who appreciated that.

"You go to a lot of games and you don't see that a lot. Usually people get booed when they score against their [old] team.

"The crowd deserves to be man of the match."
