Aaron Ramsey was in reflective mood on Thursday as the Arsenal midfielder posted a photo from the club’s pre-season tour of USA.

The Wales international uploaded a photo of the midfielder alongside left-back Kieran Gibbs, Arsenal number one Wojciech Szczesny and no-nonsense midfielder Mathieu Flamini on a boat on the Hudson River.

Ramsey wrote: “On the Hudson River #preseason #NewYork #tbt”

The 24-year-old has endured a mixed start to the season, scoring two goals and making one assist in 10 Premier League appearances.

Last month, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger urged Ramsey to forget about his goal-scoring record and focus on improving his all-round performances.

Wenger said: “Just keep the priorities right. A midfielder is a guy who defends well makes the other players play – focus on that.

“I think you have to be guided by not what people say, but the way you want to play and the [way the] game should be played.

“When you score a goal but have a disastrous game, people say you have been great.

“As a midfielder you have to keep the priorities right. Defend well, attack well and give good balls to other players. That’s basically what the game is about.

“It’s not about goal-scoring – goal-scoring is a consequence of playing well, so focus on playing well.”
