Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is absolutely delighted by Aaron Ramsey’s good form for Arsenal this season.

The Wales international scored the all important winner for the Gunners as he netted in the second half to secure a 2-1 victory against Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Ramsey has now scored 50 goals in his Arsenal career and Wenger believes that the midfielder is now more composed in front of goal.

Speaking at his post-match news conference at The Emirates on Saturday, Wenger said: “It’s fantastic [Ramsey’s 50th goal for Arsenal].

“When you look at the video of the game again, you see that Aaron Ramsey is always in the box.

“Many times he could not finish but this season he is calmer with his finishing and what he did today will give him more confidence. I think there are some goals in him.”

Ramsey has scored three goals and made two assists in nine Premier League games for Arsenal so far this season.

Arsenal’s win over Southampton left the Gunners in fifth place in the Premier League table and nine points behind leaders Manchester City after 10 games of the new campaign.

The Gunners now turn their attentions back to Europa League affairs and their home clash against Red Star Belgrade on Thursday night.

Arsenal will then switch their focus towards their crunch showdown with Manchester City at The Etihad next weekend before the final international break of the year.

The north London side finished fifth in the Premier League table but won the FA Cup last season.
