Aaron Ramsdale produces huge error as Arsenal go 2-0 down to PSV in Europa League
| Last updated
Aaron Ramsdale was guilty of a huge error for the second goal Arsenal conceded against PSV on Thursday night.
The Gunners were thoroughly outplayed by Ruud van Nistelrooy's side in Eindhoven and went 1-0 down in the 55th minute when Joey Veerman's powerful left-footed finish beat Ramsdale.
There wasn't much the England shotstopper could have done with the opener but the second was a massive mistake on his part.
The corner was swung in from the left from Cody Gakpo in the 63rd minute and Ramsdale made the decision to come out and try and punch the ball.
However, he got absolutely no contact whatsoever and allowed former Newcastle striker Luuk de Jong to head home a second for PSV.

Ramsdale won't want to watch that one back anytime soon. The former Sheffield United man has saved his team on many an occasion this season but he'll have to accept responsibility for the error.
This was Ramsdale's European debut and he was selected by Mikel Arteta in between the sticks after second-choice keeper Matt Turner picked up an injury.
He received a lot of criticism on social media from fans, who also think he should have saved Antony's goal on his Manchester United debut back in September.
Arsenal suffered their second defeat of the season in all competitions. They had already qualified for the knockout stages prior to tonight, but the loss means PSV can still top the group on the final matchday next week.
PSV are just two points behind Arsenal, who host FC Zurich in their last game at the Emirates on 3 November.
