Arsene Wenger lauds Aaron Ramsey contribution as Arsenal start Champions League on high

Despite that, and all the hype about recent club-record signing Mesut Ozil, most of the questions put to Wenger after the game were about Ramsey, who also scored when Arsenal won at the Velodrome in the same competition two years ago but is now, at the age of just 22, in the form of his life.

Marseille: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was full of praise for Aaron Ramsey after the Welsh midfielder continued his stunning start to the season with what proved to be the winning goal against Marseille on Wednesday.

Ramsey's sixth goal of the season in all competitions came after Theo Walcott had given the Gunners a 65th-minute lead in Champions League Group F at the Stade Velodrome, and ultimately separated the sides as Jordan Ayew pulled a goal back from the penalty spot in stoppage time.

The 2-1 win was Arsenal's sixth on the bounce in all competitions since a 3-1 home defeat to Aston Villa on the opening day of the Premier League season and was their 10th consecutive victory away from home, a new club record.
