Wales international Aaron Ramsey scored a double for his current side Arsenal in their 3-0 victory over his former team Cardiff City on Saturday at the Welsh capital, leading Arsene Wenger's side to move seven points clear at the Premier League summit.

Arsenal have now won 10 of their last 12 Premier League games and continue to hold the division's best away record.

According to the BBC, Ramsey teed up Jack Wilshere to hit the bar, before nodding the opener against his old club from Mesut Ozil's cross in the 29th minute, adding that Arsenal made it two when Ozil set up Mathieu Flamini to slam home and Ramsey drilled a third after a slick attack.

The report mentioned that Ramsey, who joined Arsenal from Cardiff in 2008 as a 17-year-old, however, refused to celebrate his goals, which were applauded by sections of the home crowd, and some Cardiff fans joined their Arsenal counterparts in singing Ramsey's name late on.

The result gives Arsenal breathing space above their title rivals, with none of Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City or Manchester United playing until Sunday, the report added.
