A brilliant first half performance from Aaron Ramsey on Sunday was enough to earn him man of the match as Arsenal strolled to a 2-0 lead against Bournemouth.

Paired with the unreliable Mathieu Flamini, Arsenal’s Welsh midfielder put in a superb first half performance and was heavily involved in both goals as the Gunners took a two-goal lead into the break.

He dominated in every area of his performance in the opening 45 minutes which, ultimately, decided the game.

Criticised by some fans lately, his all-round performance on Sunday was superb. Like the rest of the Arsenal team, Ramsey faded a little in the second half but he continued to work as hard as ever.

A strong performance earned him man of the match, a decision which is hard to argue with.
