Watch: Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale makes unreal save from Moura shot
Many people scoffed when Arsenal signed Aaron Ramsdale from Sheffield United this summer – but the goalkeeper will force critics to eat their words if he continues making saves like this one from Lucas Moura yesterday.
Arsenal went into the north London derby off the back of consecutive Premier League victories and comprehensively beat Spurs 3-1 to overtake them in the table.
Ramsdale didn’t have that much to do but still produced a Save of the Season contender in the game’s dying embers.
Moura’s effort from 20 yards deflected off Ainsley Maitland-Niles and seemed destined to loop into the net before Ramsdale dramatically fingertipped it onto the bar.
“To be honest I was cramping in my calves for about 20 minutes, I must have had four energy gels so I’ll be wide awake for ages,” said Ramsdale of the memorable save.
“We’ve been priding ourselves on defending, Ainsley [Maitland-Niles] has tried to get a block on it, managed to get a deflection which has probably not helped.
“I’ve managed to spring and get a hand to it and thankfully its come off the bar and reliable [Takehiro] Tomiyasu has cleared it and we’ve come away with only one goal against it and three points.”
