The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey watched his team-mate Alexis Sanchez break his goal drought against Leicester this weekend, and quickly follow it up with two more in our 5-2 win. The Welshman is keen to emulate the Chilean in tonight’s game against Olympiakos at the Emirates tonight.
Ramsey’s drought now stretchs back to 14 games but he is looking to get back on track this evening. He said in the Star today: “As soon as the first one goes in two more fly in straight away,”
“Hopefully now he’s in a good place where he can just go from strength to strength.
“Hopefully I can be there soon as well. I don’t know how long it’s been since my last goal, I just know I haven’t got off the mark yet this season which I’m disappointed with.”
“You get frustrated and then all of a sudden a few games down the line one comes and the next thing you know you’re scoring on a regular basis again
“Obviously Olympiakos in the Champions’ League would be a nice time to do it. I didn’t play in our first game but it would be nice to get off the mark in the group with a win and a few goals hopefully.”
Ramsey scored 10 goals in his 41 games last season, but was well behind the previous season when he averaged a goal every two games. Like Sanchez this weekend it really is time for him to get back on the scoresheet. Perhaps Wenger should let him play as centre-forward this evening if he is as hungry as all that….
