Aaron Ramsey has gone from laughing stock to one of the Premier League's best midfielders, thriving in a box-to-box role he's been given in Arsenal's current 4-2-3-1 formation.
The Welshman hasn't played since the 3-1 win against West Ham on Boxing Day, and his absence has been a major force in Arsenal's drop in form over the last few months and has missed more time than expected from set-backs in the latter stages of his recovery.
Arsene Wenger and Arsenal fans will be hoping he can play this Sunday against Everton in a game that has very quickly become a major contender in the battle for fourth place.
This season Ramsey has scored 10 goals and provided seven assists from 24 games whilst in the defensive double pivot, including a scoring the goals to beat Liverpool and Dortmund earlier in the season.
Wenger said on Arsenal.com: "Aaron (Ramsey) and Nacho Monreal are back training with the squad, so that is good news. Hopefully they will be available for Sunday. Diaby is back on the pitches, so that is good news."
