After a really tough and dogged effort from the home team, Arsenal finally broke through the Watford defensive line and that was a huge relief. But as much of a relief, if not more, was the fact that the third Arsenal goal was scored by Aaron Ramsey.
I am sure that no one will be more relieved than the Wales international either, because it was blatantly clear earlier in the game that Ramsey´s confident touch on front of goal was still eluding him. There had already been that glaring miss from inside the six yard box after Alexis Sanchez found him with a peach of a long ball and then just before halftime he blazed another chance high and wide.
At one point the TV commentary mentioned the unwelcome stat that Ramsey was the EPL player with the most attempts on goal without scoring. At least that showed that he was getting in the right areas and now that he has scored for his club after notching for his country in the week, I think we start to see the old Ramsey, the one that could not stop scoring a couple of seasons ago.
Back then his confidence was flowing and now that the frustration and desperation to end his goal drought is over, I expect to see Rambo chipping in regularly. Fair play to Wenger for sticking with him on the right because it really has paid off for the player and for Arsenal in general.
So is Ramsey set to score double figures for the third season in a row?
