Aaron Ramsdale: Arsenal goalkeeper wound up Leicester fans during masterclass

Aaron Ramsdale - what a man!

Aaron Christopher Ramsdale. That's it. That's the tweet.

Arsenal's new number one has well and truly silenced all of his critics over the past few months with a string of top-class performances in the Premier League.

And Ramsdale was magnificent once again in the Gunners' priceless 2-0 victory away at Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.

First half goals from Gabriel Magalhaes and Emile Smith Rowe were enough for the three points, with Arsenal's passionate goalkeeper the standout performer on the day.

Ramsdale was an absolute giant in goal throughout the entirety of the game, producing world-class saves from both James Maddison and Harvey Barnes.

The former Sheffield United was a commanding presence when crosses came into the box and also displayed some of his elite-level distribution at the King Power Stadium.

Ramsdale even found time to wind up the Leicester fans during what will rank as one of the finest goalkeeping displays of the 2021/22 Premier League season.

In the second half, the home side's supporters attempted to put off the 'keeper while he was taking a goal kick with a classic chant heard around English stadiums every single weekend.

And straight after Ramsdale had fired the ball up field, he joined in with the fans and gave them a little fist pump for good measure.

What a man!

When Ramsdale was signed from Sheffield United in the summer for a fee of £25 million, many Arsenal fans questioned whether the deal was indeed a good one.

However, the acquisition of the England international already looks like an incredible piece of business and it must be remembered that the 'keeper is still only 23 years of age.

Arsenal have got themselves a seriously good footballer and at this moment in time, Bernd Leno stands absolutely no chance of regaining a spot in Mikel Arteta's best starting XI.
