Aaron Ramsey admits he faces fight to get into Arsenal team

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger walks off at half time

The Arsenal midfielder has missed most of the campaign through injury.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has admitted to Goal that it will be tough for him to get back into the current team.

The Wales international has missed the majority of the season so far after picking up a hamstring injury.

The Gunners have looked strong in his absence, going 19 games unbeaten in all competitions to date.

Last weekend again saw him miss out on a starting role, despite the absence of Santi Cazorla, as Arsene Wenger elected to go with a central midfield pairing of Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny.

Both players have impressed and Ramsey admits he faces a fight to get back into the team.

“I want to get back in there now, get back into that team – that’s my target: to help this team achieve what we want to achieve this year," Ramsey told Goal.

"It’s going to be hard work, the team are on a good run at the moment but I know what I am capable of doing and hopefully I can bring something to this team and help them to continue, or if not do even better than they have been doing.”

The injury to Santi Cazorla could actually provide Ramsey with the perfect opportunity to get more minutes under his belt.

Wenger has so far gone with midfield pairing between Granit Xhaka, Francis Coquelin and Mohamed Elneny but that can mean his side lacks something of a creative influence.

Ramsey could provide that and having shone in central midfield before now it will be interesting to see if Wenger is willing to give him another chance in the coming weeks.
