Matchweek 8 of the Premier League saw some sensational bits of skill from all the usual customers – Sergio Aguero, Mesut Ozil, Stephane Sessegnon, Eden Hazard, Jack Wilshere and Juan Mata.
There were also moments of fantastic imagination – like Jack Wilshere’s pinball goal, Ricardo Vaz Te’s overhead shot and Alvaro Negredo’s no look dummy that set Aguero free.
But one man put together a consistent display of artistry that outshined all others – Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey. The Welshman’s dazzling footskills were unleashed throughout the 90 minutes, constantly making the Norwich City defense look like mannequins.
Everyone will remember his goal that cut up the Canaries defense, leaving four men clutching at the turf, but how about his toying of Russell Martin and Roberto Snodgrass as he jinked down the left wing before pulling a Maradona spin into a back heel pass to Ozil?
That was something special.
The 22 year old unleashed bags of tricks throughout the match ensuring that when pundits talk about player of the year candidates in the Premier League, the name ‘Ramsey’ stays atop the list.
