Ramsey netted a wonderful goal at the Emirates Stadium to seal victory after Santi Cazorla had broken the deadlock in the first half.

He is adamant that he will not rest on his laurels and he aims to become a consistent scorer like midfielders such as Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.

Reflecting on his goal, a powerful strike on the half-volley from outside the area, Ramsey told Sky Sports: "I just thought why not try an effort from distance and thankfully it went in.

"I was just waiting for the ball to sit up nicely so I could strike it cleanly, and I managed to do that.

"I'm feeling a lot more confident in front of goal and that is up there with the best I've scored.

"I've looked up to players like that (Lampard and Gerrard) over the last ten years or so and the amount of goals they get is quite remarkable, so that is what I am aiming to do."

Arsenal's victory opened up a five-point gap at the top of the table and Ramsey is confident they can sustain a title challenge.

He said: "We really enjoyed it. Everyone was up for it and the fans were right behind us from the off.

"It was very important this year to get off to a good start and we have got a nice little gap there now so hopefully we can maintain that, because we know our form in the run-in to the end of the season has been second to none over the last few seasons."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
