When I say Ramsdale wasn’t the people’s choice for Arsenal goalkeeper when Arteta plucked him from relegated Sheffield United in the August window. Bernd Leno was the favorite amongst the Arsenal fans meaning Aaron had a lot to do to convince them of his ability between the sticks. High profile errors by the German look to be the catalyst for that decision by Mikel. Names such as Areola , Matt Ryan and Onana were being shouted about from the stands. Saturday’s performance against the Foxes will most certainly go a long way to achieve that. His double save off the free kick from James Maddison(1:12 into the clip) wins the play of the week.
The free kick saw the ball start to curl from the outside of Ramsdale’s left post ,curling past the wall with Aaron positioned to his right. Not only was he second favorite to the ball then he was as well from the rebound shot by Jonny Evans. He did what is required spread your body as much as possible to limit as much of the target. Never mind the fact that Aaron was relegated with two sides in the last two seasons, he should be challenging Pickford(Aaron is helped by Jordan conceding 5 in the same week) for the England number one jersey and I for one will be surprised if his name is omitted from next week’s internationals.
