Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes the stunning volley he scored against Galatasaray in the Champions League is the best goal he ever scored.
The Welsh ace slammed home a stunning volley from over 30 yards out to bag his second goal of the net and help the Gunners on their way to a 4-1 win over their Turkish opponents.
The win counted for little as Arsenal still ended up in second place behind Borussia Dortmund, but it was certainly a memorable night for Ramsey as he bagged his sixth goal of the season.
“I have seen the goal back and it is definitely the best I have scored,” he admitted. “Before that, it was probably the volley at Norwich. As soon as I hit it, I thought it had a chance and thankfully it went into the top corner. I like playing in Istanbul. I would like to play these teams every week, if I could.”
Despite his wondergoal, Ramsey has yet to hit the heights he reached last season before injury stopped him in his tracks. The former Cardiff man managed 10 goals in the Premier League alone last season but has found things tougher this term, although injury has once again played its part.

Ramsey's own drop off has coincided with Arsenal's own poor form. They are down in 6th place in the Premier League and stumbled to a 3-2 loss in their most recent Premier League outing against Stoke, which prompted for some fans to call for Arsene Wenger's head.
Ramsey admits that Arsenal need to pick things up in the league, but are confident of turning things around.
"It’s important to get a run in the league,” Ramsey said. “We have a busy couple of weeks coming up and hopefully we can take full advantage and take maximum points throughout December. It was important to bounce back from the defeat at Stoke and we did that.
“I felt good in the Manchester United game [on 22 November] and I am getting sharper in every game. I am feeling good and hopefully I can play my part as the team go on a run. The hamstring is OK. It’s a bit tight but I should be all right for the weekend.”
