Arsene Wenger says Aaron Ramsey looks more composed in front of goal this season after the Welsh midfielder netted his third in the Premier League to bring up his half-century in Arsenal colours.
The 26-year-old converted Sead Kolasinac’s cut-back to seal a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Swansea; a strike that earned him warm words from the boss who was impressed by the player’s attacking intent throughout the match.
“It’s fantastic,” said Wenger of Rambo’s 50th goal for the Gunners. “When you look at the video of the game again, you see that Aaron Ramsey is always in the box.
“Many times he could not finish but this season he is calmer with his finishing and what he did today will give him more confidence. I think there are some goals in him.”
Yesterday’s goal by Ramsey, his 32nd in the Premier League, takes him above Sylvain Wiltord and makes him Arsenal’s 12th leading league scorer of the ‘since football was invented in 1992’ era.
Arsenal’s other goalscorer, Sead Kolasinac, also notched his third goal of the season when he hammered home an equaliser just after half time.

“We know that Seo has so much quality in attack, just as he does defensively,” Granit Xhaka told Arsenal Player.
“His goal and assist were crucial for the team and we hope he continues to perform like that.
“We make it easy for him, he was accepted instantly and we knew already how strong he is.
“That he’s that dangerous in front of goal, we didn’t see so often in Germany! But it’s going well here in England and we’re pleased to have him.”
