Arsene Wenger admits that he will have to give Aaron Ramsey a rest at some point during the season to prevent the Arsenal midfielder from burning out.

The Wales international was the star of the show as the Gunners maintained their place at the top of the table with a 3-0 win at Cardiff on Saturday, netting two goals against his former club.

And the Gunners boss plans to rest the 22-year-old in a bid to help him continue his fine form.

“I have to treat him like all the players and give them a breather when they need it,” said Wenger, whose side host Hull City on Wednesday.

“I don’t want to put too much pressure on his shoulders and we have a game that is based on team play.

“That’s why I think we have to respect our game – once we do that, anybody can score.

“We have seen [Mathieu] Flamini [against Cardiff] – he scored a goal. It’s the first one in five years. When the team plays well anybody can score.”
