Aaron Ramsey scored twice as Arsenal beat Sunderland 3-1 on Saturday, showing signs that the Welsh midfielder is back to his best after a horrific leg break against Stoke in 2010.
Ramsey's double against Sunderland takes his goal tally to six in all competitions this season - more than 17 of the Premier League teams have managed. If he can continue in this form, this season looks to be one of Ramsey's best in an Arsenal shirt.
“It’s been an amazing week, what with playing with Gareth [Bale] and Mesut [Özil] as well," he said.
“In the past few seasons I’ve been getting into positions without quite having the composure to finish it off and put chances away.
“But now things seem to be gelling quite nicely.
“I’m delighted with the way things are going right now and I just have to keep up this kind of form.”
Ramsey lined up alongside Arsenal's record transfer Mesut Özil on Saturday, and quickly struck up a partnership with the German. Özil has the most assists of any player in Europe over the past few seasons and Ramsey is looking forward to linking up with him even more this season:
“He is an unbelievable talent and hopefully that is just the start of many things to come from him.
“The timing of the pass is everything. He has a wonder of a left foot and the way he strokes the ball means that the passes he delivers always seem to be perfectly weighted, right into players’ strides.
“He has been pretty quiet, getting on with his job. But he seems a great person, both on and off the pitch.
“It’s going to be great playing alongside him. The club was fairly confident of getting a signing like him and they got him.
“The fans will be delighted with that and during his debut they didn’t stop singing his name.
“Hopefully there are great things to come from him.”
Arsenal travel to Marseille for a Champions League tie on Wednesday. They face a tough group, with Olympique Marseille, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli all hoping to make the knockout stages.
