Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has revealed that his spectacular volley against Norwich City was a result of his decision to go for it without thinking about the consequences.
The midfielder scored his 10th goal of the campaign against the Canaries with a spectacular volley from a lofted ball by Olivier Giroud to open the scoring for the Gunners.
Ramsey has started in only 20 games in the campaign, leaving Arsenal fans thinking of what might have been if the player had managed to assist them through the length of the campaign.
The Welshman was out for three months with a thigh injury but had still managed to take his goals tally to double figures, more than Southampton's Adam Lallana, who was included in the PFA Team of the Year.
The Gunners lost their way after Ramsey's departure, and with Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil also out of contention, they petered out in the race for the Premier League title, finishing in the fourth spot, seven points off the league leaders.
"We were on the counter-attack and I was [waiting] for the ball at the far post. It was a great ball from Oli [Giroud] and I just thought 'I'll have a go at it' and it ended up in the top corner. It was a nice end to a good move," Ramsey told www.arsenal.com.
"It was important to win. Our target was always to win our remaining games in the league and we've managed to do that. We've got 79 points and that's an improvement on last season. It was important to win before we go into the FA Cup final.
"[Everyone] wants to play in finals and we have one now so I'm looking forward to that. We haven't won anything for many years now so this would be a great trophy to win and I'm sure that if we do win it, it will make us more hungry to go on, get to more finals and win more trophies," he said.
