Arsenal have experienced their second worst start to a season under Arsene Wenger, having collected just 11 points from their opening eight matches. Nonetheless, a fit-again Aaron Ramsey remains optimistic of his side's chances of success.
The Welshman believes his manager's transfer business over the summer has left the club in a good position for the remainder of the campaign. Arsene Wenger spent just short of £60 million on new additions, and thus far, these players have been the highlight of a somewhat disappointing season.
Former Manchester United striker, Danny Welbeck, signed for £16 million on deadline day, already has five goals in just seven matches since joining the Gunners. This includes a stunning hat-trick scored in the club's Champions League clash with Turkish outfit Galatasaray.
“Danny Welbeck has settled in really well after coming in on the last day of the window," he said. “I thought it was a great bit of business, scored his first hat trick of his career and hopefully he can kick on and continue scoring."
Alexis Sanchez, too, has impressed. The Chilean international made the move from Barcelona to the Emirates following an impressive World Cup, and his hot-streak has continued ever since. He netted Arsenal's opener in their midweek 2-2 draw, taking his club account to four.
“Sanchez as well. He has played well in every game he’s been in," Ramsey continued. "Calum has slotted in really well - so composed for a 19-year-old on the ball, very strong defensively as well and he’s been a great signing."
Meanwhile, former Southampton youngster Calum Chambers has been excellent. The 19-year-old is already a favourite with the fans thanks to his promising early season displays at both full-back and centre-back, where he has deputised for both Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny already this season. He even scooped the club's Player of the Month award for August.
