Wenger Praises Goal-Machine Ramsey

MOST COMMENTED

Arsenal recorded its sixth win in a row in all competitions by beating Marseille 2-1 at the Stade Velodrome in its UEFA Champions League Group F opener on Wednesday. Theo Walcott volleyed the Gunners into a 65th-minute lead, before Aaron Ramsey netted what proved to be the winner in the 83rd. Jordan Ayew pulled one back for Marseille in stoppage time.

Ramsey’s goal was his sixth of the season in all competitions, which is already better than his tally for the whole of last season. "Honestly I didn't expect him to score so many goals, but he has especially improved with his passing and his technical quality," Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger said, preferring to emphasize the Welshman's all-round game. "That is the most important because he was always in good positions in the box. Scoring is a bit cyclic. You have some periods where it goes in and periods where it doesn't but for me the most important is the quality of his game.”

Wenger was also full of praise for the French club, which arguably had the better of play in the first half. "It is only the people of Marseille who seem unconvinced about the quality of their team. I was convinced before the match," Wenger said. "They know they have nothing to lose and the French are always dangerous when they are in that position. They are not out of it yet."
