Complaining about squad depth didn’t come with warrant, but at the moment, there isn’t too much wrong with Arsenal, who have now won six consecutive matches in all competitions, and are enjoying, maybe for the first time, an Aaron Ramsey they dreamed about when he first arrived from his Welsh club, and was seemingly lost forever after his awful injury.
