Aaron Ramsdale put in a brilliant performance against Leeds United as Arsenal grinded out a 1-0 win. Bukayo Saka’s goal was enough for Arteta’s men to secure all 3 points and remain at the top of the table.
Arsenal managed a narrow victory which could have easily ended up in a draw. Patrick Bamford missed a penalty and Ramsdale managed to keep his team in the lead with a bunch of fantastic saves.
Asked by Arsenal’s official website to pick his favourite save, Ramsdale said of spreading himself at Bamford’s feet: “The one with my nuts maybe? Although it took a big effect on me, I’m still feeling a bit sick now! I’m just thankful I was there.”
“I have been very critical of myself over recent games from the start of the season where goals have gone in, and there’s questions to be answered the following day. So to help the team out was great.”
“It’s just one of those emotions where now we’ve set our bar so high, standards-wise of how we want to play, and we didn’t reach that. But the overriding emotion is elation because we got three points and a 1-0 win away from home.”
Arsenal have won as many as nine of their opening 10 games to a top-flight campaign for the first time in their history.
