Serbia played a 1-1 draw with Wales in Group D of the 2018 football World Cup European qualifiers at the Rajko Mitic Stadium.

Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey scored from the penalty spot in 35th minute, but Serbian forward Aleksandar Mitrovic equalised in the 73rd minute to ensure a share of the spoils.

Arsenal have started the 2014-15 season exactly how they ended the last one with silverware in their hands following a well deserved 3-0 win in the FA Community Shield against Premier League champions Manchester City. Two of Arsenal's goals came in the first half through their FA Cup heroes in Santi Cazorla and Aaron Ramsey. Substitute Olivier Giroud added a third around the hour mark to kill the game as a contest.

Neither side came into this game at full strength due to the massive World Cup commitments of their star players, but there was enough quality on display in both starting elevens to make this a competitive contest. In the absence of their German contingent, Arsenal handed debuts to Alexis Sanchez, Calum Chambers and Mathieu Debuchy, while Manchester City were missing their Argentine stars and also handed first time starts to Fernando and Willy Caballero.

As if it wasn't already clear enough, Arsenal's Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey gave the Gunners' fans a glimpse of what they had been missing over the last three months as he scored the opening goal and assisted the next two as Arsenal beat their FA Cup Final opponents Hull City 3-0 in a game they dominated virtually right from the start.

The difference in class of both teams was all too evident, and Ramsey showed just why he is such an integral member of this Arsenal side putting in another terrific shift in midfield. Ramsey proved to be the decisive runner from midfield latching on to Santi Cazorla's pass to put Arsenal 1-0 ahead around the half hour mark before setting up two goals for Lukas Podolski, though perhaps both were a little inadvertent as he was going for goal himself!

There was a touch of class about Arsenal at the KC Stadium today as a considerably stronger starting eleven showed the fans a glimpse of just what might have been had the Gunners been able to field key players in big games over the last couple of months. Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil started the game for Arsenal and the difference in quality of the two sides was quite obvious as Arsenal romped away to a comfortable 3-0 win to rack up back to back wins in the Premier League after what must feel like an eternity.

In a game that had significant importance to Arsenal's Champions League ambitions, not to mention being a precursor to the FA Cup Final between these two sides in May, Hull boss Steve Bruce took the adventurous route by fielding 2-strikers, perhaps giving himself a chance to see whether that was a risk he could take at Wembley against a Gunners midfield that had the potential to pass his side to death. The move unsurprisingly backfired as Arsenal dominated the match for long periods, leaving Hull chasing shadows.

With Arsenal fans dreading this year’s menacing March, owing to a list of fixtures that could very well see the club struggling to cling on to fourth place at the end of the season,  the Gunners have at least some positive news going their way.

The International Business Times reports that the North London club is on the verge of finalizing a new and improved five year deal for their talismanic midfielder Aaron Ramsey. The deal when finalized, would see Ramsey earning more than £100,000 a week, second in line to their blockbuster turned dud summer signing Mesut Ozil. The 23 year old was acquired from Cardiff after beating Manchester United to the chase, for a measly sum of £5 million. In the years gone by, Wenger has carefully nourished the Welshman and sheltered him from constant criticism to transform him into one of the most prolific midfielders this year.

Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is all set to hand the Gunners a welcome boost by returning from his injury for the Premier League clash against Fulham this weekend. The Welsh midfielder had picked up a thigh strain in the match against West Ham United on Boxing Day, and the injury has kept him out of action for close to a month. Ramsey has been arguably the Gunners' best player this season, topping the scoring charts for the North London outfit with 13 goals and making 8 assists in the Premier League.

Ramsey’s return will be a welcome boost for Wenger's squad, which has been blighted by injuries. Nicklas Bendtner, Theo Walcott and Abou Diaby are out of action with long term injuries, while Nacho Monreal and Tomas Rosicky are being assessed for a broken metatarsal and nose respectively.

Arsene Wenger is facing a mini crisis with several key players likely to miss the crucial North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur. The bitter rivals were drawn together in the third round of the FA Cup and the game will be the late kick off on Saturday. The preparation for the derby is far from ideal for the Gunners who have seven first team players - Aaron Ramsey, Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil, Nicklas Bendtner, Kieran Gibbs, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby – ruled out through injury.

The absence of Ramsey represents a major blow as the Welshman has been the star of Arsenal’s season, top scoring with 13 goals in all competitions from midfield. They will also most likely miss the presence of Olivier Giroud, who has 11 goals from 27 games this season, including the winning goal against Tottenham in the Premier League earlier in the season. Wenger revealed the test on Giroud’s ankle was looking encouraging, but the Frenchman was afflicted with illness and thus is unlikely to feature.
