Ramsey looks forward to getting back in front of Arsenal fans in bid to go top

Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey has said that the team enjoyed a good training session today, as the club bids to go top of the Premier League with a win against Stoke at the Emirates tomorrow.

Ramsey Tweeted: 'Good training session today, preparations done for Stoke. Will be nice to get back in front of our home fans tomorrow'.

Ramsey has returned to Twitter and seen his followers grow to in excess of 700,000 after scoring 6 goals from 7 shots in 8 competitive games this season.

Arsenal take on a resurgent Stoke City Sunday, who under manager Mark Hughes have surprised critics so far this season, and will go above Arsenal if they bag all three points.

Arsenal's confidence remains high after a strong start to the season - despite kicking off this Premier League campaign with a 3-1 home defeat to Aston Villa. 6 wins out of 6 in all competitions since then, however, sees Arsenal as the form team.

Forward Theo Walcott captured the mood in the Arsenal camp after the 2-1 win at Marseille in the Champions League on Wednesday (a record 10th successive victory on the road), when he said:

'I think we'll push on and we can definitely challenge this year, for sure'.

'There is so much belief in this team at the moment and I think it's showing. We just need to make sure we get that home form going now, the away form is absolutely fantastic'.

The addition of Mesut Özil on the final day of the summer transfer window is already looking an inspired move. Despite a price tag of £42.5m, which many felt at the time represented a 'desperation buy', Özil has quickly settled into the team and is clearly a playmaker who can inspire team mates to up their own game.

The omens are good for Arsenal as Stoke head for the Emirates, and victory tomorrow for the Gunners will force many of the club's critics to re-evaluate their view of the club's chances of breaking its 8-year trophy drought.
