Aaron Ramsey was proud to make his 150th Premier League appearance for Arsenal - and even happier to cap it with the winning goal.
The Wales midfielder struck in the 11th minute to secure a hard-fought win for Arsene Wenger’s side at Turf Moor on Saturday.
It was Ramsey’s eight goal of the season and, after overcoming some difficult periods in his Arsenal career, the 24-year-old has reached another milestone.
"It means a lot to reach that at my age. I missed a big chunk of that through injury so I’m very happy"
“I’m delighted to get the goal and even more happy to make my 150th Premier League appearance,” he told Arsenal Player. “Hopefully there will be many more to come.
“It means a lot to reach that at my age. I missed a big chunk of that through injury so I’m very happy.
“It was a tough game and you could see why so many teams have dropped points here this season. They’ve been pretty strong at home so it was good that we hung on.
“I thought we looked pretty solid defensively and they didn’t really have too many clear-cut opportunities. We scored the goal as well and I’m delighted to get that.”
