Ramsey pleased to hit Arsenal milestone


Aaron Ramsey says he’s ‘delighted’ to hit a half-century of goals in an Arsenal shirt after reaching the milestone in today’s 2-1 win over Swansea City.

The Welshman tucked home Sead Kolasinac’s inviting cut-back on 58 minutes to seal the Gunners second half comeback against stubborn opponents.

“I’m delighted to reach 50 goals for this club,” Ramsey told Arsenal.com after the game. “Hopefully there’s a few more to come yet!

Swansea took the lead through their first chance of the match as Sam Clucas stole behind the Gunners defence to slide past Petr Cech on 22 minutes. As was the case last week against Everton, Arsene Wenger’s men stepped up the pace after the break to seal the points and to maintain their 100 per cent winning record at home this season.

“I’m just delighted to have played a part in winning this game today,” added Ramsey.

“They’re a quality team and it was difficult in the first half. But we stuck at it, we knew we had the quality and it’s important to win at home. I’m just delighted that we won the game today and we kept our 100 per cent winning record at home.

“We have quality players throughout this team and down the left-hand side today, we were more dangerous. We’re delighted to have these sorts of players in the team who can create opportunities and I’m pleased to be a part of that.

“We’ve started well at home this season and we got a good win away from home last weekend. We want to build on that, become stronger away from home and hopefully continue this run that we’re on as well.”
