Aaron Ramsey relished playing a more attacking role in Arsenal’s 2-1 win at Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Arsene Wenger tweaked his midfield at Selhurst Park by starting the Wales international on the right flank, with Santi Cazorla partnering Francis Coquelin in the middle.
Ramsey looked dangerous throughout and the 24-year-old credited Wenger’s tactical change with his influential performance.
"Some of the combination play was really good and on another day we could’ve scored more"
“It was the manager’s decision and he tweaked things around,” he told Arsenal Player. “He told me to try and get in between the lines, not stay outside, to come inside and I thought I did that by getting into some dangerous positions. Some of the combination play was really good and on another day we could’ve scored more.
“We played really well, got into some dangerous positions in between the lines and on another day we could have scored a few more. Even though we conceded we never questioned our ability to go on and score again.
“I had a couple of chances and maybe on another day they would’ve gone in. I’m just happy for the team, for Olivier to get his goal and to get the win.
“It was a great goal and a great ball from Mesut. It was good build-up play and it’s not an easy ball to control and put into the back of the net. Oli managed to do that.”
