Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey came on as a substitute in this past weekend’s match against Sunderland, his first bit of action with the team since the opening day defeat to Liverpool.

Arsene Wenger, for one, is certainly happy to have Ramsey back in the fold.

"He is a player who is box-to-box so overall he pushes the team forward," Wenger said. "That is what we want in our side. He can play in holding midfield, he can play if needed on the flanks as well. That’s where he is not happy but he can play there as well.

"He has a tremendous drive, he’s a bit Lampard-ish you know, where he likes to get in the box, likes to shoot from distance and has similar quality."

Wenger did not go so far as to say whether or not Ramsey would start against Ludogorets tomorrow, but it’s certainly nice to have the option, especially with the Gunners facing a critical slate of matches this November, highlighted by the North London Derby this coming Sunday.
