Premier League: Longest serving players in each of the top 6
With only 8 games to go in the league campaign this season, Manchester City has all but secured the title after a sensational season. Guardiola's men have the chance to clinch the league at the Etihad with a win over rivals and neighbours Manchester United in two weeks time.
The race for the top four is also quite interesting with United, Liverpool, Spurs and Chelsea still battling it out for a Champions League spot. Arsenal sits in sixth, 13 points off rivals Spurs in fourth and 8 points off Chelsea in fifth. Arsenal, however, does have a route back into the Champions League provided they win the Europa League and are currently in the quarter-finals, drawn against CSKA Moscow.
With the top six still in contention to make Europe's elite competition, we take a look at the club's longest-serving players and experienced heads who will be vital in their respective club's end of season run-ins.
#6 Aaron Ramsey - Arsenal
Welsh and Arenal midfielder, Aaron Ramsey is the club's longest-serving player, having played at the North London club for 9 years and 7 months. Ramsey only just celebrated his 27th birthday in December 2017, but his 10-year anniversary of signing for Arsenal is on the horizon.
In his footballing prime, Ramsey has been struggling this season with a niggling injury that has kept him out of the side for crucial games this campaign. The Welshman left Cardiff City to join the Gunners in the summer of 2008, with his competitive debut coming in the Champions League qualifier with Twente in August.
Ramsey has been a pivotal player for the manager and the club and has now amassed over 300 appearances for Arsenal. The midfielder has scored over 50 goals in all competitions and lifted three FA Cups in 2014, 2015 and 2017. Having scored the winner in two out of the three cup finals, Ramsey is an important asset to the squad and has a contract until June 2019.
