Aaron Ramsey has endured mixed fortunes since arriving at Arsenal as an 18-year-old from Cardiff City back in 2008.
His heights include captaining his country and scoring the winner a few years back against Manchester United, with his lows being his horrific injury as well as his uncertain squad status.
After a few loan spells away and a full return to fitness, this season could prove to one of high stakes for the young Welshman at the Emirates Stadium.
With the signing of Santi Cazorla as well as the return of Abou Diaby and the pending comeback of Jack Wilshere, Ramsey finds his place in the squad far from certain, never mind the first team.
And while many Gooners around the country would have raised an eyebrow after seeing his name in the starting line-up to face Manchester City on Sunday, the 21-year-old proved his worth.
Rambo justified his inclusion in the starting 11 with an impressive display in his favoured number 10 role in what was arguably one of his best games for the club.
He kept the ball well, looked keen to receive the ball at any time and his passing was brilliant.
Rambo could have had a couple of assists to his name as well had things gone his was and in particular if Gervinho would have been able to hit a barn door.
The Ivorian displayed an ugly first touch after being played in beautifully by Ramsey with the scores at 0-0.
As well as putting in a good shift, Rambo completed the full 90 minutes, something which he has found hard to come by in recent times.
We’ll have to wait to see whether or not he keeps his place in the side, I imagine he’ll be a sure starter in the League Cup match with Coventry City this week, unless Arsene Wenger has bigger things in mind for him with the Chelsea clash looming.
Either way, Rambo put in a great performance yesterday and let’s hope that he can keep his form going.
