Arsenal attacker Bukayo Saka has claimed that “everyone” continues to be surprised by in-form Gunners stopper Aaron Ramsdale.
The former Sheffield United man was the star of the show as Arsenal won 2-0 at Leicester City at the weekend, producing a magnificent double save from James Maddison‘s free kick and Jonny Evans‘s follow-up.
Ramsdale has now kept five clean sheets in his first eight games for Mikel Arteta‘s side since joining in the summer, and Saka has lavished praise on his compatriot.
Speaking to reporters after the win at the King Power, Saka said: “From my angle, it was 100 per cent a goal and then he saved it. The second action, I thought it was going to be a goal again and he saved us again.
“I don’t know how he saved it, then he saved it again. So hats off to him from me. He was our best player today and he deserved a clean sheet. He just keeps surprising everyone and he is in great form. I just hope he can continue like that because he is making a big difference.”
Ramsdale’s eight saves against Leicester helped the Gunners rise to sixth in the Premier League table – three points adrift of the top four.
