Swansea defender Taylor: Ramsey can replace Cesc at Arsenal

Swansea City defender Neil Taylor feels Aaron Ramsey is the man Arsenal can rely on to fill the void left by Cesc Fabregas.

Taylor, 22, is preparing for tomorrow's trip to the Emirates with the promoted club. He knows fellow Welsh international Ramsey, 20, from the international scene.

He said: "I'll have to tell the lads how good Aaron is ahead of the game but his qualities will be a long list.

"He is a good player and has come back really well since his broken leg.

"Something like that can knock a player down but to comeback and captain your country says a lot about the lad and his character.

"I have seen him for years and he's been like this since he was 14 or 15.

"That's attracted Arsenal which is a great club for him.

"He could replace Nasri or Fabregas but I don't think all that weight is going to be on his shoulders as they have brought in other players as well.

"But he should definitely be a starter there and if he keeps progressing like he is then he should cement his place."
