Aaron Ramsey admits that while he’s delighted to have finally netted 50 goals for Arsenal, he doesn’t plan on slowing down.
Rambo netted the Gunners’ winning goal on Saturday during their 2-1 win over Swansea, which now means he’s scored 50 in red and white. However, the Welshman insists that he wants more.
“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% winning record at home.”
As well as his 57th-minute goal, the 26-year-old completed 55/65 passes (85%) and made two key passes. He also won three tackles and delivered a clearance.
The midfielder has now scored three goals and provided three assists over nine Premier League appearances this season.
Rambo’s been at Arsenal for nine years now so he would probably be the first person to point out that he should have met this 50-goal milestone before now. However, if it wasn’t for injuries, he most likely would have.
The Wales international has under two years on his current deal with the Gunners. Hopefully, he decides to extend and we get to see him reach the 100-goal mark.
Despite going 1-0 in the 22nd minute, Arsenal were the better team at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon. They had a whopping 73% of possession and 17 shots (five on target) to Swansea’s four (two on target).
There’s still plenty of room for improvement but overall Arsene Wenger’s side seem to be heading in the right direction and stringing some positive results together… Shall we just collectively agree that Watford never happened?
