Player of the Match

There’s only one man that deserves this isn’t there…

Wales international Ramsey was superb this evening, with the midfielder bagging a hat-trick as he helped the Gunners on their way to a rout.

The former Cardiff City man was fantastic today, with him displaying the form we saw him achieve during the 2013/14 season, a campaign in which he was absolutely phenomenal.
