Aaron Ramsdale's reaction to David Raya wonder save sums him up

Aaron Ramsdale's reaction to David Raya wonder save sums him up

David Raya made a stunning save and the cameras panned to Aaron Ramsdale.

Aaron Ramsdale's priceless reaction to David Raya's wonder save against Spurs was caught on camera.

The England goalkeeper has found himself playing second fiddle to the Spaniard, who signed on loan from Brentford in the summer transfer window.

Ramsdale was dropped following the international break, with Raya appearing to be Mikel Arteta's first choice in between the sticks after making three consecutive starts.

The decision was justified however as Raya produced a stunning reactive stop to deny Brennan Johnson in his North London derby debut.

The ex Blackburn man sprawled to his right to claw the ball back away. And not long after, footage showed Ramsdale sat on the bench.

He applauded the excellent piece of goalkeeping and his facial expression showed just how impressed he was.

Arsenal went 1-0 up when Cristian Romero deflected Bukayo Saka's goal into his own net but Spurs levelled through Heung-Min Son, who converted after some excellent play from James Maddison down the left.

Raya didn't cover himself in glory in the build-up to the goal after flapping at a cross before saving from Johnson again.

Maddison then rinsed Saka, who incidentally had mimicked his celebration after opening the scoring.

Prior to the game, Mikel Arteta explained his decision to go with Raya over Ramsdale, telling Sky Sports: "It’s trying to play the way we want to play on the day. I made some calls and left some players on the bench".

Ramsdale had started Arsenal's last 52 Premier League games in a row prior to being displaced by Raya against Everton.

But Arteta hailed the former Bournemouth shotstopper's professionalism, describing him as "an exceptional character".

"I understand [his frustration] and it's very difficult for every player," he said as per BBC.

"He's been very supportive and good around the place and that's what I expect from every single player because when you're on the field there is someone else who's not so it works both ways. So far he's been very good.

"It is hard and with other players it's the same. Aaron is an exceptional character and has a charisma and aura around him and we all know that."
