Top five Aaron Ramsey goals for Arsenal

Top five Aaron Ramsey goals for Arsenal

Aaron Ramsey’s time at Arsenal is coming to an end with a deal all-but agreed with Italian giants Juventus.

The Welsh international is set to join the Old Lady on a free transfer upon the expiry of his contract this summer following 11 memorable years at the Emirates Stadium.

And speaking of memories, we thought we’d take you back through Ramsey’s top five goals as a Gunner ahead of his departure from the capital.

Some of these goals were incredible. Relive them below.

The goal that stunned Liverpool

One of the earlier goals on this list arrived in the form of a stunning, long-range effort in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Liverpool in 2013.

The goal was Aaron Ramsey’s 10th of the season, and what a goal it was.

It’s another one of his impossible-looking strikes. Santi Cazorla provided the assist after opening the scoring, dinking the ball inside to Ramsey, who receives the ball around 25 yards from goal.

The Welshman takes a touch and strikes the bobbling ball across his body and into the far left corner with virtually no back-lift. An absolute screamer.

A goal of significance at the time, too, because it put Arsenal five points clear at the top of the table after 10 games. It didn’t last, but it will have felt good at the time.

That night in Turkey

In terms of sheer significance, this goal doesn’t have a lot to shout about, but in terms of the goal itself, you would do well to source one better.

It’s one that shocked Europe and maybe even the world. The ball is cleared from a corner and Ramsey hits it first time with his left foot.

It should go into row Z. When he strikes the ball, it’s in mid-air, but it’s almost as low as the floor, his body position looks way out of shape.

However, his technique is sensational and the ball, with power, flies into the very top corner from 30 yards with the keeper routed to the spot.

It put Arsenal 3-0 up in a game they would eventually win 4-1 to finish top of their Champions League group in 2014.

FA Cup winner, episode one

Aaron Ramsey now has something of a reputation of popping up with a winner in the FA Cup final, but it all started in 2014 when the Gunners faced Hull City at Wembley.

Arsenal were left frustrated by the Tigers, going to extra time with the scores locked at 2-2, and it looked as though the game might be meandering towards penalties, heading into the second half of extra time with the scores still level.

However, in the 108th minute, Ramsey inserted himself into Arsenal folklore by rounding off a fine move with a smart toe poke into the near post to hand his team the famous trophy.

FA Cup winner, episode two

Ramsey was at it again at Wembley Stadium in 2017, in a game everyone expected Arsenal to lose against Chelsea.

However, the Gunners came out fighting, taking the lead in the first five minutes through Alexis Sanchez.

Diego Costa would equalise in the 76th minute, but just three minutes later came a moment few Arsenal fans will forget in a hurry.

Aaron Ramsey popped up in the middle of the box to find the net with a diving header, handing Arsenal another FA Cup trophy.

This goal was all timing, awareness in the box. It didn’t have the eye-catching quality of the others on this list, but it’s one that will stand out in the mind of Aaron Ramsey and the minds of Arsenal fans. What a moment for the Gunners and the Welsh international.

From Russia with love

Okay, this goal actually took place in North London, but it was against Russian club CSKA Moscow, and it was an absolute belter.

This goal was simply ludicrous, one that defied physics in many ways.With Arsenal 2-1 up, a chipped ball finds the run of Aaron Ramsey in the box. The ball arrives to the Welsh international at waist-height and with the goalkeeper rapidly approaching off his line. Few foresaw what would happen next.

Ramsey jumped, twisted, and used the outside of his boot to lift the ball over the keeper and into the net.

There’s no way to describe this goal that would do it justice, so make sure you go and see it, if you haven’t already.

The goal put Arsenal 3-1 up in a game they would go on to win 4-1. It was a Europa League quarter-final last season, a tie they would progress from, but they lost in the next round to Atletico Madrid.
