‘Ramsey shouldn’t be obsessed by goals’

Arsene Wenger has stressed that Aaron Ramsey does not need to be “obsessed” with scoring as he looks to get back to his best form.

The Wales international hit 16 goals last season during a memorable campaign, and has three to his name so far this term.

However, his manager insists that there is much more to Ramsey's game than simply goalscoring, and he wants him to get back to basics.

"He's not a goalscorer, so he has not to be obsessed by that. I just want him to do his job well"

“A midfielder is a player who defends well, attacks well and keeps his priorities right,” Wenger said.

“He's not a goalscorer, so he has not to be obsessed by that. I just want him to do his job well. The goals are the consequence of the quality of his game. I don't believe that he has to be obsessed by that.

“He's running after consistency. He's one of the players who has been very efficient last season.

“Since the start of the season, he has not had a consistent run. He's now coming back - he has been sick as well."
