Aaron Ramsey reacts to Alexis Sanchez’s Arsenal display, sets target for the season

Aaron Ramsey heaps praise on Alexis Sanchez after the striker's winning penalty for Arsenal against Burnley

Aaron Ramsey heaped praise on Alexis Sanchez after the Chilean scored Arsenal’s dramatic late winner from the penalty spot for the Gunners against Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal went ahead Shkodran Mustafi’s header from a corner shortly after half-time, but Andre Gray netted an equaliser for the visitors deep into stoppage time from the penalty spot after Francis Coquelin conceded the spot-kick.

However, it was Sanchez who had the final say, when he stepped up to duly convert his penalty with cheeky chip down the middle after Laurent Koscielny was fouled in the box, despite the defender appearing to be offside in the build-up.

Ramsey was full of praise for Sanchez after he scored his 15th Premier League goal of the season for the Gunners, and the midfielder is hoping to see more goals from the attacker in the coming weeks and months.

Speaking to Arsenal’s website after the game, Ramsey said of Sanchez’s penalty: “That just sums up the quality and the confidence that he has to do that in the last minute.

“Hopefully he can keep scoring now until the end of the season.”
