Arsenal have enjoyed a fine start to the season, winning the 2014 Community Shield before claiming a dramatic win against Crystal Palace on Saturday, coming from a goal down to claim three points at the death.

Aaron Ramsey was the standout performer for the Gunners last term and he has found the net in each of his last two games, with Sky Bet offering an attractive 12/5 about the Welshman finding the net.

Ramsey has been likened to Cesc Fabregas by manager Arsene Wenger, with captain Mikel Arteta by the influence that his team-mate is starting to have on games.

‘Aaron is on fire. When you have a player like this coming from midfield to score that many goals gives you something extra,’ said Arteta.

‘We don’t really have a 30- or 40-goal scorer at the moment, so to have players who can score goals from the middle of the park is very important.

‘He reminds me a little bit of Fabregas when he was here. At his best, Cesc was coming off the front, making the final ball and scoring very important goals.

‘I think Aaron’s confidence is really high at the moment, physically he can do whatever he wants and technically he is in a very good state, so he is one of the most important players in the team”.

Wenger has suggested that Per Mertesacker could be drafted back into the team for the trip east, saying: “We will assess him [Koscielny] and, if he is capable of playing, I will play him.

“I planned to bring the Germans back in contention for Everton but, in case of emergency, I will take Mertesacker. It’s a bit early for him – ideally he would need one more week’s preparation – but he’s willing to play.

“The Gibbs situation makes it even more [significant]. We have Bellerín, who is 19 but a player I am certain can come in, but we are a bit short. I have Ignasi Miquel as well who can travel. We will see – I hope that Koscielny responds well.”
