Big strides: Ramsey had made huge progress before his injury

Arsenal fans are planning a special tribute to Aaron Ramsey at Saturday's Premier League game against Burnley.

Teenage midfielder Ramsey is facing eight months on the sidelines after suffering a horrific leg break in a tackle from Ryan Shawcross during last weekend's win over Stoke.

A special 18ftx15ft  'One Aaron Ramsey' banner has been made which the supporters will drop from the top tier at the Emirates Stadium.

Dozens of Gooners have contributed to the cost and the fans are hoping to arrange for the young Welshman to sign the banner.

Meanwhile former Gunners midfielder Ray Parlour is convinced Ramsey will battle back to fulfil his huge potential.

'I am sure he will be fine,' the ex-England international told Arsenal's website. 'Robert Pires did his cruciate while I was at Arsenal and came back.

'Aaron has a strong body and a strong character for a 19-year-old. He'll have to work hard on his fitness of course but I am sure he'll be OK.'

Parlour, who made 466appearances for the noth Londoners, added: 'I rate him really highly. He is an excellent player who can be big for Arsenal in the future.

'He has gone up a standard this season. I have been really impressed by him this season.'
