Alan Smith reacts to Aaron Ramsey’s display in Arsenal’s 0-0 draw with Chelsea
Alan Smith reflects on Aaron Ramsey's performance for Arsenal in the goalless draw with Chelsea on Sunday
Alan Smith picked Aaron Ramsey as the man of the match as Arsenal produced a disciplined display to earn a goalless draw at Chelsea on Sunday.
The Gunners were much more solid than they have been in recent away games as they battled against the Blues to earn a point at Stamford Bridge.
Ramsey had a number of chances for the Gunners as he produced an impressive performance for Arsene Wenger’s men in west London.
And former Arsenal striker Smith was very impressed by the Wales international’s display for the Gunners against the Blues on Sunday.
Speaking during Sky Sports’ coverage of the game, Smith said: “He’s going to pick up the [man of the match] award.
“He’s symbolic of the way Arsenal have played today – much more disciplined and sensible.
“He got forward quite a few times but he’s also not left his back three unprotected alongside Granit Xhaka.”
Arsenal return to Premier League action with a home clash against West Brom at The Emirates on Monday week.
Chelsea, meanwhile, will take on Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday as they look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League.
