Ramsey compared to Chelsea hero Lampard
06:50: Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey has been compared to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard by Sky Sports’ Jamie Redknapp.
“Aaron Ramsey is thriving for Arsenal at the moment and it is because he is playing in his best central position,” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.
“Arsene Wenger needs to keep Ramsey in this ‘Frank Lampard’ role.
“Whenever the ball goes wide, Ramsey’s priority has to be to make those runs from deep and get into the box. He is tireless in midfield, covering more ground than any other Arsenal player in each of his last four starts.
“Time and again he digs this team out of holes.”
