Arsenal lead Cardiff City by a goal to nil at half-time thanks to a 29th minute headed goal from Cardiff's academy product, Aaron Ramsey, who was assisted by Mesut Ozil. It has become a familiar combination as the former now has seven Premier League goals in the current campaign while Ozil now has five assists.
Arsenal began the game in a positive fashion, with Jack Wilshere showing early intent by sending a shot into the post having unleashed an effort from distance.
The Gunners could have had a goal in the first quarter hour, when Ozil, whose visionary passing was on point throughout the November 30 match at Ninian Park, supplied Olivier Giroud who had a clear chance, but halted his run, believing he was offside when he was seemingly on.
Ramsey could have doubled his and his side's lead just before the break but shot over the bar.
In all, Arsenal have thus far played exceptionally well, retaining possession and showing great link-up between the flourishing partnerships and combinations on the field, however, the main talk on social media has concerned the Ramsey goal, which he did not celebrate, that Cardiff applauded.
Arsenal fans believe this shows the level of class that the 22-year-old possesses, something their former player Robin van Persie could perhaps take note of, as the Dutchman was obviously delighted with his goal that ended up downing the Gunners when the North Londoners played on Manchester United's patch earlier this month…

I was an Aaron Ramsey apologist. Now some have realized his pure class. Truly a remarkable turn in form. Another spectacular goal. #AFC— Robbie Rosenhaus (@robbierosenhaus) November 30, 2013
