Aaron Ramsey's spell of games without a goal for Arsenal continued against Southampton.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey had a mixed performance as the Gunners beat Southampton 1-0 in a pivotal Premier League clash.

The Welshman provided the game winning assist for Alexis Sanchez at the end of the game, a vital contribution to bring Arsenal within three points of the Saints.

Ramsey has been out of form since his return from injury, and hasn't scored since August. This was his first assist since September.

It has not been for lack of trying, Ramsey had five shots against Southampton, with only one on target. Versus West Brom at the weekend he had five, all off target.

His desire to snap his own personal goal drought was clearly frustrating for fans to watch, who vented their disappointment with the Welshman's form and decision making, via Twitter.

Ramsey was prolific in front of goal last season, even bagging the winner in the FA Cup Final. The midfielder began this season in form too, but has been unable to impact games in the same way over the past two months.

This has much to do with a change in style, he profited from playing off Olivier Giroud, and it's also a confidence issue for him. Perhaps, with the assist under his belt, he will take some of the pressure off himself and begin to play more naturally without trying to force the issue.

Here's a look at how Arsenal fans reacted to his display via Twitter...
