Maybe it is the fact that Aaron Ramsey has been one of the many Arsenal players struggling to find top gear this season that has made the Welshman much less effective than he has been in previous campaigns, but I do not think that his current playing position on the right is helping him or Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger clearly has great belief in Ramsey and that faith has been proved well based on many occasions in the past. And the manager may be trying to get Ramsey to play through his current run of form but I cannot see the point of him starting every game in that wide role.
For one thing, Ramsey is much more effective in the middle, where he was playing a couple of years ago when he scored all those goals and was our Player of the Season. And for another thing, we have players like Walcott and the Ox that could be more effective on the right.
Ramsey on the right unbalances the team as he comes inside where he is more comfortable but then we lose width and the midfield becomes congested. His average position from the Leicester game was actually on the edge of the centre circle.
I think it might be a good idea to give Ramsey a game in his old role this week against Olympiakos. That would also add more defensive solidity than Cazorla gives and could allow Wenger to start Arteta. It might be just what Rambo needs to get him going.
Whether it does or not though, Arsenal cannot keep starting with Ramsey on the right can we?
