Arsene Wenger on the "outstanding" Aaron Ramsey and the upcoming Manchester City fixture


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was full of praise for midfielder Aaron Ramsey after the Gunners secured a very important away win at Aston Villa.

The Welshman was one of the best players on the pitch for the visitors as he started and finished a brilliant move to give the Gunners a two-goal cushion in the first half.

"He [Aaron Ramsey] had an outstanding performance today," Wenger told reporters.

"I think of course he is naturally more of a central midfielder and I pushed him out wide for a while because I believe we have seen many times that when players are pushed against the line they need to shorten their technique. When they come back into the middle again, they are better players.

"[The Manchester City game?] Let's see tomorrow.

"We have Leicester [against] Chelsea and if Leicester beat Chelsea they have a very good chance to be top of the league at Christmas.

"It is a big game and we want to win at home and beat City at home. There are now eight days to prepare and it will be a interesting one but we can at least recover and prepare then."
