Piers Morgan praised Aaron Ramsey’s contribution as Arsenal secured a nervy 3-1 win over Sunderland at Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners took the lead against the Black Cats in the 33rd minute thanks to Joel Campbell’s opener in north London.

However, the visitors drew level on the stroke of half-time when Olivier Giroud scored an own-goal to hand Sunderland a lifeline.

But despite appearing to be nervous for long spells of the game, Arsenal went ahead again in the 63rd minute when Giroud made amends by heading in Ramsey’s pass.

And Ramsey made the three points secure when he bundled home from close range following Calum Chamber’s deflected shot in stoppage time.

And the usually critical Arsenal shareholder Morgan appeared to be pleased with the victory at Emirates Stadium, as well as Ramsey’s contribution – although he continued to refuse to refer to the Wales international by name.

As the game unfolded, Morgan tweeted:
