Aaron Ramsey secured Arsenal a place in this seasons Champions League tournament with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Fenerbahce, who couldn’t seem to break through the Gunners’ defence as their goalkeeper was on fine form. Arsenal’s goalkeeper, Wojciech Szczesny, made a couple of wonderful saves and that mixed with a brace from Aaron Ramsey at the Emirates last night, put the Gunners into the Champions League for a 16th consecutive year.
Arsenal were very comfortable going into the second leg last night as they won the first leg with a dominant display in the 3-0 away victory. The only way Fenerbahce had any way of occupying a Champions League spot would have been if they managed to win 3-0 or more away from home and, if they went into extra-time, winning that too. However, on the night, the Turkish side looked highly unlikely to win by a 3 goal or more margin as Arsenal played comfortable, attacking football using attack as their best form of defence.
Aaron Ramsey just enjoys scoring for Arsenal against Fenerbahce as he also scored in the first leg as well as the second leg. Kieran Gibbs and Olivier Giroud were the other names on the score sheet for the first leg last week. Fenerbahce very nearly took the lead from a long shot which just whizzed by the post, then Arsenal decided to apply the pressure as a Jack Wilshire through ball was deflected by Walcott into Aaron Ramsey’s path who had an open goal to score the opener in.
Fenerbahce could have creeped back into the game when Emmanuel Emenike blasted a shot on target, forcing Szczesny to push the powerful shot onto the post keeping Arsenal a clean sheet. Theo Walcott then impressively took a curling free-kick which could have easily put Arsenal 2 goals ahead just after the half time break, but it unfortunately hit the cross-bar. It wasn’t long after though until Ramsey got his second from a stunning volley, sealing the fate of both teams with just less than 20 minutes of the game remaining.
Even though Arsenal are on track now in the Champions League, they did not get the greatest of starts in the Premier League after not having any action in the Transfer Window. The fans were far from happy when Arsenal lost their opening match of the Premier League season 3-1 to Aston Villa and were putting the blame purely on Arsene Wenger for not signing a single player in the transfer window. However, Wenger’s faith in his team has paid off in recent times defeating Fenerbahce twice and dominating Fulham last weekend 3-1.
