Arsenal have an extremely tough task on their hands to make the Europa League final following their 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their semi-final on Thursday night.
Atletico went down to 10 men in the early stages of the match, and it was Arsenal that made the breakthrough in the second half when Alexandre Lacazette headed into the back of the net.
The brilliant Antoine Griezmann struck late for the Spanish giants, however, to leave the tie level at 1-1 ahead of the return match in Madrid next week.
Arsenal’s defence did not cover themselves in glory at the Emirates Stadium, but there is no question that Aaron Ramsey was again impressive for the Gunners in a midfield position.
The Wales international has scored 11 times and registered 11 assists in 28 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions this season, and it would be safe to say that the club’s supporters absolutely love what the 27-year-old brings to the table match after match.
A selection of the Twitter reaction to the Welshman’s performance can be seen below:

Thank you Aaron for an absolute masterful performance. Superb game from the team all round. Arsenal keeping the pressure on from the first second to the last. Unlucky with the last header, what a beauty and what a save. ????
