Arsene Wenger: This Arsenal star can be our Frank Lampard

Arsene Wenger: This Arsenal star can be our Frank Lampard
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey has been compared to Frank Lampard
Lampard's goals helped Chelsea win three Premier League titles and the Frenchman reckons Ramsey can have a similar impact for his club.
"He drives and pushes the team forward and that is exactly what we want in our side," said Wenger of the Welsh international.
"He is Lampard-ish you know. He likes to get in the box and shoot from distance. They have similar qualities."
And while his side are unbeaten in their last 14 games, Wenger is considering starting with Ramsey in Arsenal's Champions League game against Ludogorets tomorrow night.
Ramsey has not started since hobbling out of the Gunners' opening day defeat at home to Liverpool with a hamstring injury.

But he came off the bench in the 77th minute to set up Alexis Sanchez second goal in the 4-1 win at Sunderland.
Arsenal fly out to Bulgaria with Wenger having one eye on Sunday's visit of bitter rivals Tottenham.
Asked if Ramsey will start in Europe, he added: "I'll have to analyse all that now. We have Granit Xhaka back who can now play in the Champions League and then we play Tottenham.
"So I'll have to see who I rest and who I play without diminishing our chances of winning."
