The Arsenal and Wales international star Aaron Ramsey was a key figure in the victory over AFC Bournemouth at the weekend, earning himself the Man of the Match award from the TV pundits with a performance full of energy, desire and ability and having a big hand in both goals which gave the Gunners a vital three points.
But Ramsey knows that this was just the start of the comeback trail for Arsenal and if we are to get back to the top of the table where we need to be then the win on Sunday needs to be the start of a good run of results. At least Ramsey, as reported by The Guardian, the midfielder was sounding upbeat about the chances of the Gunners doing just that, despite the fact that out next opponents are the league leaders Leicester City who are in fine form and are coming to north London having produced a great away display to put another title rival Man City to the sword.
The Welshman said, ““It was important to bounce back from the results we have had of late. So it was important to stay in touching distance of Leicester. What they have done this season is quite remarkable but we have got to be right on it to get all three points. It was important to win at Bournemouth. Hopefully now we can take away this momentum and come away with a victory against Leicester as well. We are in a good position now and hopefully we can maintain this.”
Ramsey is not just hoping either, as he and the rest of the Arsenal squad have good reasons to believe that we can keep on building momentum after ending a run of four games without a win. They only need to go back a couple of months to remember the last time we did it in fact.
The five games in November saw Arsenal win just once and that was in the Champions League. We only took two Premier League points and people were saying that our title challenge was faltering but then we stormed back with three wins in a row and five of the next six, including the big game against title rivals Man City.
So we can do it and if the Arsenal players look back at December and believe they can do it again, will Sunday see us keep up the momentum with a win over the Foxes?
