Ramsdale - That save? It's just about reactions

The three points were ours at Leicester, but the day surely belonged to Aaron Ramsdale.

Our goalkeeper is yet to taste defeat in an Arsenal shirt, and delivered a truly magnificent display - including an unforgettable save to deny James Maddison.

Afterwards, we asked Aaron to talk us through a moment that the likes of David Seaman and Peter Schmeichel described as the best save they had seen in years.

"It’s just all about reactions," Ramsdale told Arsenal Media. 

"I was more worried that he was going to reverse it into my corner but as it was a close free-kick, he sort of had to get it up and over the wall and that gave me a chance. He couldn’t really whip it like he normally does. 

"From then on, it’s about explosion. If you get there, you get there and if not, you don’t. I’ll watch it back. It’s just one of those that can go either way.

"We should have had [a clean sheet] against Aston Villa," he continued. "It was one of those where they should have been stopped and I made a point about it after the game. It’s a collective - it’s not just down to me and the four lads at the back. It’s for everyone. 

"I said that to the attacking lads again today and they were excellent. I just felt like today we weren’t going to get beaten. Even when they had chances, it was me or the lads blocking it, or the strikers closing the ball down."
