Ramsey has not scored in 18 appearances, and indeed his goalless start to the season echoed his Arsenal teammate Alexis Sanchez, who until last week, had not opened his account for the Gunners this term.
Wenger’s men will be looking to bounce back in style when they host Manchester United at the Emirates on Sunday following their disappointing Champions League reverse to Olympiakos at home on Tuesday.
“I don’t know how long it’s been since my last goal”, he said.
That came in May 2014, just before Van Gaal’s appointment at United, as they narrowly avoided relegation and manager Dick Advocaat knows his side needs to improve if they are to avoid that fate this time.
Arsenal’s mercurial forward Alexis Sanchez notched his first goal of the season against Leicester City last weekend and went on to add a two more in a 5-2 victory.
The 24-year-old has not found the net since a 3-1 win at Hull City in May, and Ramsey, who has spent much of the 2015-16 campaign in a wide role for the Gunners, admits that he is disappointed with his goalscoring woes.
ARSENE Wenger has urged Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to follow in the footsteps of a team-mate if he wants to take his game to the next level. “That means the area you get the ball, and that makes Alexis hard to mark because he gets into positions where he can score“.
“It wasn’t just him“.
“As soon as the first one goes in two more fly in straight away”, he told reporters.
‘Hopefully I can be there soon as well. “Hopefully now he’s in a good place where he can just go from strength to strength”.
