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.”
