Arsenal have one foot in the semi-finals of the Europa League after a 4-1 win against CSKA Moscow at the Emirates on Thursday.
The Gunners produced a superb attacking display on the night, but it was Aaron Ramsey’s goal that has got everyone talking.
It was a rather unusual finish by the Welsh midfielder, scoring in the 28th minute with a leaping lob volley.

Wenger said the Wales international is showing some of his best form since his breakout season in 2013-14 after managing to stay largely injury-free in recent months.
“For Aaron Ramsey it’s always the same, [he needs to] have a consistent presence in the side without being stopped,” Wenger told a news conference. “Personally I think he has overcome his problems. He has no injury problems at all anymore.
“And when you can play game after game, you can see that not only is he involved a lot in the build-up of the game but he goes to the end of things.
“And what has changed since 2013, he’s a much better finisher nowadays. He’s calmer, the way he finishes, you see he is composed. Before he rushed a little bit his finishing.”
Next up for Arsenal, it’s strugglers Southampton at home, the second leg of the Europa League tie with CSKA Moscow will be next Thursday.
