Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey feels like we’ve overcome our mental block at Old Trafford after rescuing a draw to take a massive step towards automatic qualification for the Champions League, the Welshman told Arsenal.com.
After winning there in March to dump them out of the FA Cup quarter-final, the way we salvaged a draw despite being second best for large parts of the game shows how much we’ve improved.
Ramsey himself was moved central late on and produced a wonderful performance, capped off by his sensational 50-yard-diagonal pass to Theo Walcott for the goal.

“We have found it difficult (at Old Trafford) in the past but I think we have overcome that now,” Ramsey stated.
“It took us some time to get going but when we did find our rhythm we felt quite comfortable out there.”

Ramsey has given Wenger a massive selection headache with the way he turned the game on its head once moved central by the manager.
Santi Cazorla, who’s been magnificent since being deployed there, has shown signs of tiring in recent weeks and Wenger may be tempted to rekindle Ramsey’s relationship with Mesut Ozil which worked a treat for large parts of last season.
Time for some big choices, Le Boss!
