Aaron Ramsey: By The Numbers:  : 20160424

The midfielder was highly impressive in the 0-0 draw with Sunderland.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey was in fine form as his side drew with Sunderland this weekend.

The Gunners were left frustrated on Sunday afternoon as a resolute Black Cats defence held them to a 0-0 draw at the Stadium of Light. 

In fact, it could have been very different had Sam Allardyce’s side been more fortunate, with them unlucky not to grab a goal in the game.

Arsene Wenger’s side had similar chances though, with the Gunners' midfield in its usual industrious form.

Key to that was Aaron Ramsey, once again handed a role in the centre of the field, with the Welshman putting in an impressive display.

As the table provided by Opta demonstrates, he was heavily involved throughout the game.

He posted 115 touches in the game, the most of any player, with just four of those proving to be unsuccessful.

Ramsey's attacking play was impressive, as he managed 86 accurate passes, the most of any Arsenal player, two key passes and an overall pass success rate of 88%.

He did not shirk on his defensive duties though, managing three defensive duels won, three interceptions won and eight ball recoveries in total in another impressive central midfield showing.
