Arsenal fans think Aaron Ramsdale 'should’ve saved at least a few pens' in shootout defeat

Aaron Ramsdale failed to keep out any of Sporting's penalties in the shootout.

Some Arsenal fans think Aaron Ramsdale should've saved a few penalties in their crushing shootout defeat to Sporting CP.

The Gunners crashed out of the Europa League on Thursday following their 5-3 penalty shootout defeat at the Emirates.

Gabriel Martinelli fluffed his lines from the spot as the Portuguese team booked their spot in the next round of the competition.

But some Arsenal supporters on social media are bemoaning Ramsdale's effort in goal during the unsuccessful shootout.

The England international got close on a couple of occasions, but failed to keep any out as his side were eliminated.

People on Twitter believe he should've saved a few penalties while others backed the club's No.1.

One Twitter user wrote: "Let’s be honest, Ramsdale should’ve saved at least a few pens there."

A second argued: "We wouldn’t have got to penalties if it wasn’t for Ramsdale."

A third added: "He’s always been terrible at penalties. I knew the minute that it went to penalties that it was over."

Another said: "Just bad luck, no need to jump on any of them. Penalties can go either way."

A fifth commented: "His penalty saving record is awful. That’s the one thing i do not like about him. I never feel confident when we go into a pen shootout that Ramsdale can make at least one save."

Ramsdale made some important saves during the 90 minutes and extra-time, but he was at fault for Sporting's equaliser.

He was chipped from distance as Pedro Goncalves produced a moment of magic to score a stunning goal.

Arsenal are no longer in the Europa League as they can now fully focus on the Premier League, where they sit at the top of the table.

As for Sporting, they await their fate on Friday for the Europa League quarter-final draw.
