Ramsey - How it feels to reach 50 goals

Saturday’s 2-1 win over Swansea City was graced by two notable milestones.

It marked the 800th Premier League game for Arsene Wenger as manager, and by the final whistle it had also seen Aaron Ramsey’s 50th goal for us.
The Wales midfielder tucked away the winner just before the hour mark after a typically predatory run into the box to meet Sead Kolasinac’s cross.

“I’m delighted to reach 50 goals for this club,” he said afterwards. “Hopefully there’s a few more to come yet!
“I’m just delighted to have played a part in winning this game today. They’re a quality team and it was difficult in the first half. But we stuck at it, we knew we had the quality and it’s important to win at home. I’m just delighted that we won the game today and we kept our 100 per cent winning record at home.
“We have quality players throughout this team and down the left-hand side today, we were more dangerous. We’re delighted to have these sorts of players in the team who can create opportunities and I’m pleased to be a part of that.
“We’ve started well at home this season and we got a good win away from home last weekend. We want to build on that, become stronger away from home and hopefully continue this run that we’re on as well.”

Aaron Ramsey

Aaron Ramsey has undoubtedly been one of our standout performers in 2017.

The Wales international has been at his box-to-box best, providing goals and assists over the past month, while forming an effective midfield partnership with Granit Xhaka. 

But how well have you been following Ramsey over the past year? Find out by taking our quiz below:


Ramsey - Wembley win meant everything

It doesn’t get much better than scoring the winner on Emirates FA Cup final day - and Aaron Ramsey has done it twice.

Olivier Giroud set him up against Hull City in 2014 and repeated the favour in May as Chelsea were beaten 2-1 at Wembley. And this latest moment of glory tasted even sweeter.

“No disrespect to Hull after I scored the winner against them, but against Chelsea, they were champions of England at the time,” said Ramsey. “It meant everything for us on the day to come away with that cup and we left everything out there.

“It was another brilliant day for us, for the football club and the fans. We had our ups and downs last season but it was important for us to finish off strongly and to finish the season off with a bit of silverware. To get the winner was another amazing feeling for me. I’ve been lucky enough now to achieve that and experience that twice.”

Momentum is vital in football and we certainly have it after that Wembley win and two early summer signings. Ramsey thinks we can build on that - if we find some consistency.

“I do feel good about this season,” he said. “This squad has come on and we’ve shown what we’re capable of doing in certain games for example, the cup final. 

“We can match the best and it’s about just getting that consistency over the season. Hopefully we can do that and have a bit of silverware to show for it at the end of the season.”
