Aaron Ramsey: Has been in sparkling form

Aaron Ramsey: Has been in sparkling form

The Wales international suffered a badly broken leg in a meeting with Stoke City back in February 2010 which kept him sidelined for 12 months.

The emotional scars have taken longer to heal than the physical ones for Ramsey, with his performance levels having dipped on his return to action.

The 22-year-old has, however, been Arsenal's star man during the early weeks of the 2013/14 campaign - netting six times in seven outings.

Ramsey says he never lost faith in his ability and is delighted to be back on top of his game and looking towards a bright future.

He said in the Sunday People: "I never feared that I wouldn't return. I felt it was always there. I just needed to believe again and get that confidence.

"I had a lot of support from friends and family, and I had the trust that the manager put in me.

"All these things added up over a period of time. You have to keep believing and working hard, and it just clicks all of a sudden and you are full of confidence

"I am delighted with myself and the team. After the disappointing start against Villa, we have turned things around.

"We have gone on a fantastic run and, hopefully, we can continue that and I can continue my form."

Ramsey will go head-to-head with Stoke again on Sunday, as well as Ryan Shawcross - the man who put in the tackle which threatened to wreck his career.

On that meeting, Ramsey said: "I have just got to get on with it. I have shaken his hand a few times. Nothing is going to change there. I will do the same again.

"We are not mates, but we are playing a game of football."
