Mikel Arteta on Aaron Ramsdale’s man of the match performance vs Leicester
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta gave his thoughts on the superb performance of goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale in their 2-0 victory over Leicester City.
Leicester vs Arsenal ended in a fairly comfortable away win, as clinical finishing and a fine display from Aaron Ramsdale stretched the Gunners’ unbeaten run to nine games in all competitions.
Arsenal almost took the lead in the first few minutes as Bukayo Saka surged into the box and his pass was almost deflected into his own net by Daniel Amarety. The Gunners took a deserved early lead as Saka’s superb corner was flicked home by Gabriel.
Aubameyang and Partey went close soon after as Arsenal’s press pinned Leicester back in their own half, and they soon doubled their lead. Leicester gave the ball away and Lacazette ran towards goal and the ball fell to Smith Rowe who slotted home.
The Foxes finally woke up before halftime as Kelechi Iheanacho had a great effort from distance tipped wide by Aaron Ramsdale, but Arsenal were well on top.
Ramsdale then made a fantastic save right on half time as James Maddison’s free kick was pushed onto the bar by the Arsenal goalkeeper and then Jonny Evans’ rebound hit the post, hit Ramsdale and somehow stayed out.
In the second half Harvey Barnes came on and made a difference, as he went close on a few occasions. But Leicester didn’t score when they were on top and Arsenal saw out the win in comfortable fashion.
