Arsenal star frustrated over goal-scoring drought ahead of Man United clash

Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey has revealed his frustrations over his current goal-scoring drought, according to reports from the Mirror.

Ramsey is well-known for being a goal-scoring midfielder, but the Wales international has yet to open his account so far this season.

The 24-year-old is therefore hoping to end his drought when the Gunners host Manchester United at the Emirates on Sunday, while also claiming that it’s been so long he does not remember his latest strike.

“I don’t know how long it’s been since my last goal,” he said.

“I just know I haven’t got off the mark yet this season, which I’m disappointed with.”

Ramsey went to praise in-form team-mate Alexis Sanchez, who scored a hat-trick against Leicester City last weekend before adding to that tally with a goal in their Champions League loss to Olympiakos.

“It’s nice to see Alexis scoring again,” he said. “You could see his frustration before that and how much he wanted to score.

“It wasn’t just him. There are a few other players – myself included – who are a bit frustrated not to get a goal, but I’m delighted for him that he’s finally got off the mark.

“As soon as the first one goes in [for the Chilean], two more fly in straight away! Hopefully now he’s in a good place where he can just go from strength to strength.

“That’s how it goes. You get frustrated and then all of a sudden a few games down the line one comes and the next thing you know you’re scoring on a regular basis again.

“Hopefully I can be there soon as well.”

Arsenal currently sit fourth on the Premier League table with 13 points, while their opponents United are top with 16.

A win for the Gunners would therefore bring them into the mix as title contenders, but a loss would allow United to hold an even stronger grip at the summit.
