Ramsey reveals how he’s found his form at Arsenal once more

The Gunners midfielder is once again a vital figure in Arsene Wenger's side.

Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey has been talking to the club website about how he has adjusted his game this season in order to benefit from a more natural approach - something that has seen him to return to form.

After netting his highest ever season total of 16 in last year's FA Cup winning season, there was plenty of pressure for the Welshman to replicate that form from the beginning of this season.

And the Gunners star admitted that he was a little too preoccupied on how he would find the back of the net, rather than resorting to a more intuitive approach in front of goal.

“That was probably what I was guilty of at the beginning of the season where I got off to a good start and then the goals dried up a bit,” the midfielder told the Arsenal website.

“Then I started focusing too much on how to score, putting too much power on the ball when I should have just let it happen naturally. It’s nice when you don’t really think about it too much and just do it.

“Throughout this season I’ve had injuries and it’s taken me a couple of games to get back into it. With my style of play, I like to get up and down the pitch, that’s why it takes me a couple of games to get back into it, to get my fitness up again.

“When I’ve been out for that period of time and getting back into it, it’s quite challenging for me physically and that tires you out in certain things like your decision-making. It’s important for me to get a couple of games in so that I feel I’m ready to go then.”

Things started well for the former Cardiff City star in terms of goalscoring this season, with three goals in his first three domestic games, but since then, the Wales star has had to contend with a couple of niggling hamstring injures, while Arsene Wenger sought to find a way to create a winning midfield with the players he has available.

And after making his third successive start in the win over Liverpool, Ramsey is very much a part of the Gunners' impressive winning streak, playing alongside Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla in a slightly deeper central midfield role.

The 24-year-old has relinquished some of his goalscoring intent for the good of the team, yet those three starts have yielded one goal and a trio of assists, including two in the weekend's 4-1 win over their rivals, and he is in a position where his energy can be put to good use both offensively and defensively.

It could be that Wenger has found the perfect position for his gifted midfielder.
