Aaron Ramsey says he’s adapted his body to deal with life in the Premier League and hopes his injury-free run will continue.
The Wales international has been a mainstay of Arsene Wenger’s midfield this season starting 13 of Arsenal’s 15 Premier League fixtures so far.
Having notched up seven assists and three goals along the way, the 26-year-old is enjoying arguably his best run of form in the first team since 2013/14.
“I know what I’m capable of doing,” he told the Evening Standard on a visit to Stoke Newington Secondary School this week.
“I just want to stay fit and healthy and let my football take care of itself.
“I’ve been putting everything out there and hopefully it will continue.
“I have adapted my body to the load of playing in the Premier League and am building up that fitness gradually.
“I’ve felt really good so far and hopefully that’ll continue for a long time now.”
Ramsey also confirmed that his deft assist for Alex Lacazette in last week’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester United was very much deliberate.
The midfielder’s darting run behind the Red Devils defence ended with a delightful cushioned pass back to the Frenchman to fire past David De Gea.
“I was going to take a touch but out of the corner of my eye I saw De Gea coming out, Lacazette was up there so I just knocked it back to him.
“Hopefully that puts an end to that debate,” he concluded.
