The 20-year-old midfielder came off the bench to reduce Villa’s deficit against Arsenal, after Mikel Arteta’s side took a 3-0 lead at the start of the second half.
Thomas Partey opened the scoring before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubled Arsenal’s lead by scoring the rebound off a missed penalty, which Villa’s Emi Martinez had initially saved before half-time.
Emile Smith Rowe added a third for the hosts before Ramsey’s placed shot from the edge of the box in the 82nd minute picked out the top corner.
Speaking of Villa’s performance, Ramsey told VillaTV : “It was a tough game to come onto, being 3-0 down. The gaffer puts you on to try and make an impact.
“On a personal level, I’m happy to get my first Premier League goal, first goal for the club.
“Overall, it was disappointing with the result and the performance.”
He added: “I did an interview a couple of weeks ago after the Manchester United game and I said that I wanted to get more goals and more assists.
“I think I was on 29 [Premier League] appearances, so it’s taken a while. I’m thankful that it’s come tonight, but we’re disappointed with the result.”
Villa’s next chance to get back to winning ways comes against West Ham United on home turf next weekend.
And Ramsey believes the togetherness in the squad will be important as they look to end a three-game losing run.
He said: “We’ve got a great squad in that dressing room with a lot of great players.
“We’ve got to stick together now ahead of another game against West Ham at Villa Park with the home crowd.
“I’m looking forward to that one.”Internet Explorer Channel Network
