Aaron Ramsey: I need to score more goals for Arsenal this season
Aaron Ramsey sets his sights on improving his form in front of goal for Arsenal ahead of the new Premier League season
Aaron Ramsey has set his sights on improving his form in front of goal for Arsenal ahead of the new Premier League season.
The 22-year-old Wales international netted just one Premier League strike last season, in the 4-1 victory over Wigan Athletic back in May.
And the midfielder admits that he needs to become more composed when presented with goal-scoring opportunities for the Gunners.
“It’s something I need to improve on, hopefully I can do that in the new season,” Ramsey told Arsenal’s website.
“I’m getting into the positions and just need to be a bit more composed in those areas.
“I was playing well in that Wigan game, which helps with your finishing. I had confidence last season and hope to take that into the new campaign.”
Arsenal finished last season in style, winning eight of their final 10 games as they pipped north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur to fourth place.
And Ramsey is hoping the Gunners, who host Aston Villa on Saturday, can continue their fine form this season as they look to end their long wait for a trophy.
“We’ve been a few seasons without winning anything now but hopefully we can take the run that finished last season into the start of next season,” he said.
“That’s what we’ve lacked in recent years, a good start, and we have ended up playing catch-up.
“We have a really good atmosphere in the team with good players, and we are experienced now – so we can’t wait to get started.”
