Aaron Ramsdale continues to impress
Eyebrows were raised when Arsenal agreed to fork out 24 million pounds for Aaron Ramsdale, but his influence on the Arsenal side has been immense.
Since he replaced Bernd Leno between the sticks, the Gunners are yet to lose a game, having gone unbeaten in eight attempts. Meanwhile, Ramsdale continues to prove his worth.
Welcome to The Arsenal, @AaronRamsdale98 ❤️

James Maddison had already had one attempt earlier in the half, firing a free kick from a similar distance into the Arsenal wall. Second time around, however, he made no such mistake. The ball looked destined for the top corner of Arsenal’s net, and set to hand Leicester a much needed lifeline in the process.
Step up, Aaron Ramsdale. Flying to his left, he somehow tipped the free-kick onto the underside of the crossbar before the rebound was scrambled off the line by his team-mates. For a man who cost so much, it was a priceless save.
Aaron Ramsdale that is insane! 😱
How he kept out this James Maddison free-kick, we will not know! 🧤⛔️

David Seaman, Arsenal’s last legendary shot-stopper, was full of admiration for the new Arsenal number one’s stop.

Meanwhile, Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel lauded the claw as the “best save” he’s seen “for years”. High praise from former legendary no.1s.
