What a goal
Arsenal took on CSKA Moscow in tonight’s Europa League clash but despite the convincing scoreline, it was Aaron Ramsey who gripped the headlines.
The Gunners were looking to gain a big advantage in the home leg of their quarter-final clash and they certainly did that.
The side took the lead after just 9 minutes with Aaron Ramsey getting the first goal of what turned out to be an incredible first half.
That is because CSKA equalised just 6 minutes later through an incredible free-kick from Aleksandr Golovin.
It wasn’t level for long though, as Arsenal were awarded a penalty in which Alexandre Lacazette easily dispatched.
Then came the moment of magic from Aaron Ramsey.
Arsenal were on the front foot and looking to get themselves a two-goal lead going into the second half.
While it looked likely, no one could have expected the way in which it came.
Mesut Ozil lifted an incredible pass in between the two CSKA central defenders.
There was Aaron Ramsey who produced a moment of magic when he lifted the ball over the Igor Akinfeev.
Though, it wasn’t just a simple flick, the Welshman’s flick came in the form of what was a side-footed, cushioned effort that can only be described as delightful.
Don’t take our word for it, you can see the goal below.
STUNNING GOAL, ARSENAL!!!

It’s been a pretty good week for stunning goals with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring a brilliant overhead kick on Tuesday.
Though, it’s safe to say that social media was just as impressed with Aaron Ramsey’s flick.
The Welshman was the talk of the town on Twitter and Arsenal fans went into meltdown.

What a bloody goal that is. Stunning finish from Ramsey, brilliant! Ozil’s pass, Ramsey’s delicate chipped finish on the volley. 3-1.
