Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Ramsey master-class v Swansea

Ramsey Celebrates 2013

Aaron Ramsey scored yet again as Arsenal put Swansea City to the sword at The Liberty Stadium.

Every now and again a player suddenly comes good. After years of failed promise, potentially injury problems and a lack of form they become mature physically and mentally - and the game just starts coming easily for them.

It happened with Gareth Bale for instance - and now it is happening to another Welshman.

So far this season, as Jamie Redknapp put it on Saturday Night Football, Ramsey is the ‘best midfield player in the country right now’ and it is difficult to argue with such a statement after watching his performance against Swansea City.

The former Wales captain was the star of the show for yet another magical performance in the heart of Arsenal’s midfield.

Everything good came through Ramsey, with his poise, pace and panache The Swans had no chance of stopping him - and this is a player who, one year ago, the Arsenal fans would not have batted an eyelid if he upped and left The Emirates.

His goal was a thing of beauty yesterday, as it all came from an excellent touch from him in the midfield.

A cross field ball found its way to Ramsey, although its original destination was Jack Wilshere. So Ramsey nonchalantly gave it some more pace with a back-heel into the path of Wilshere, who earned possession with a burst of speed and a strong tackle. He then worked the ball to Olivier Giroud - who squared it to, guess who?

Ramsey of course, who sold the dummy on his first touch before smashing the ball into the top corner for 2-0.

Arsenal went on to win the game 2-1, with Ramsey the key to their success - also bagging a delightful assist for Serge Gnabry.

And it almost seemed to slip some people by that Ramsey is now not only the top tackler in the Premier League, but also the joint top goal-scorer.

After the game Ramsey was awarded the Barclays Man of the Match award, we imagine just ahead of the other goal-scorer Serge Gnabry. But his strike yesterday now takes him to eight goals in nine appearances in total this season - meaning in 2013-14 he has scored only two less goals than the 11 he had scored in his entire Arsenal career before now.

And the fans know they witnessed something of a master-class yesterday, judging by their reaction on Twitter
