It is fair to say that Aaron Ramsey hasn’t got going in 2017 and the Arsenal midfielder has faced another spell on the sidelines through a calf strain picked up in February.
Despite the Welshmen making his comeback from the injury against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, Ramsey was substituted by Arsene Wenger in the second half.
The number eight was unable to make an impact in the Bayern drubbing but did score one in the FA Cup 5-0 thrashing to non-league side Lincoln City last Saturday.
However, his place in the starting line-up looks far from secure for the trip to West Brom on Saturday with even one Arsenal fan dropping the midfield maestro out of his ‘best XI’ on Instagram, as reported by the Metro.
Gunners fans were then left bemused when the selection got a reaction from the man himself –who ironically responded with a ‘like’ despite his lack of inclusion.
Was this a tetchily sarcastic reply from the Arsenal midfielder, or does he genuinely consider his place is on the bench for the clash at the Hawthorns?
Take your pick.
