Aaron Ramsey is hoping that he can now recapture some of his top form for Arsenal heading into the hectic festive period.

The Wales midfielder has failed to hit the same heights as last term, when he was voted the north London club’s player of the season, and has missed part of the campaign with a hamstring injury.

However, the 23-year-old says that he is only now starting to finally feel 100 per cent physically fit again.

“I had a hamstring injury and it takes a few games to get back to your best,” said Ramsey.

I’m not worried at all. I still believe in my qualities

“I felt like the last game [against Manchester United] was the first time in a long time that I felt sharp again and felt like I was physically there.

“Hopefully now I can continue that and have a very successful season.”

He continued: “I’m not worried at all. I still believe in my qualities and I’m sure I can show them again this year.

“We have a really good unity in the team. Everybody wants to work hard for each other.

“Maybe at the beginning [I was too focused on trying to score goals]. I’ve put it to the back of mind and am focusing on other things.

“I’m still going to make my runs into the box; that’s my game. I can also get back and defend.”
