Aaron Ramsey sends Twitter message to Arsenal fans ahead of Liverpool clash

By Matt Farr

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has shared his delight on Twitter after returning to training with the first-team.

Ramsey, 26, has been sidelined with a calf injury since the Gunners’ shock defeat to Watford on January 31, but returned to training with the club ahead of their Premier League clash with rivals Liverpool this week.

After making his long-awaited return, Ramsey took to his personal Twitter account on Friday to share his delight with the Arsenal fans.

The Wales international has struggled this season, contributing just one goal and two assists from 17 appearances in all competitions, facing heavy criticism for his inconsistent displays.

It is also the third injury setback Ramsey has had this season, having previously been ruled out with a hamstring injury and then an earlier calf injury.

However, his return should be a considerable boost for the club, who have been left short of midfield options in recent weeks.

Arsenal will be looking particularly to benefit from his leadership and experience when they attempt to overturn a four-goal deficit in their Champions League knockout-round second-leg meeting with Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

Ramsey reached ground-breaking heights during the 2014-15 campaign, contributing ten goals and eight assists from 41 appearances, but he has yet to re-create such form.

He netted six goals and five assists last season, but has been largely ineffective this term.

Arsenal face Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday afternoon, where Ramsey could return to the matchday squad.
