Aaron Ramsdale has been a revelation at Arsenal so far this season.
The Gunners spent close to £30 million to bring the goalkeeper to north London from Sheffield United in the summer and the transfer was initially met with scepticism.
Ramsdale hadn’t exactly thrived in the Premier League prior to 2021/22 with both the Blades and Bournemouth.
But ever since he first ousted Bernd Leno from Arsenal’s starting XI for the team’s home match versus Norwich City, the charismatic 23-year-old has performed to a ridiculously high standard.
In his 16 appearances across all competition for Mikel Arteta’s side, Ramsdale has kept nine clean sheets and conceded just 14 goals – with four of them coming in one match against Liverpool at Anfield.
That impressive record means that the new fan favourite at Arsenal possesses the second-best clean sheet percentage record in Europe this season.

Over on Transfermarkt, Ramsdale currently ranks ahead of Edouard Mendy, Alisson Becker, Ederson, Manuel Neuer and Thibaut Courtois.

Well played, Alphonse.
Mendy and Alisson are the other two Premier League shot-stoppers to join Areola and Ramsdale in the top 10, with Ederson currently 11th on the list.
