Aaron Ramsdale: Arsenal star showed class with Ethan Nwaneri moment vs Brentford

Aaron Ramsdale perfectly summed up the togetherness in the Arsenal squad right now in a special moment with Ethan Nwaneri.

The Gunners have enjoyed a dream start to the Premier League season under Mikel Arteta and currently sit top of the table after seven games.

The club’s only blip to date came in a tough encounter with Manchester United two games ago, in which they played well but ultimately fell to a disappointing 3-1 loss after some clinical finishing from their rivals.

Their first defeat posed the question as to how the relatively youthful side would respond to adversity.

But on Sunday, they answered that dilemma emphatically by brushing aside Thomas Frank’s notoriously tough Brentford side and claiming an impressive 3-0 away victory.

It was a dominant performance with William Saliba and Gabriel Jesus’ first-half goals effectively putting the game beyond Brentford, before a Fabio Vieira wonder strike provided the icing on the cake.

But besides the team’s mouthwatering display, the record-breaking debut of young Ethan Nwaneri will maybe have provided Gunners fans with the most satisfaction of all.

The 15-year-old, who was born in March 2007, made history as the youngest person to ever compete in a Premier League match when he was subbed on in the 91st minute.

He took the record from Harvey Elliott, who has 16 years and 30 days old when he first appeared for Fulham in 2019.

Nwaneri comfortably beat the record held by Elliott given the Englishman was just 15 years and 181 days old.

Aaron Ramsdale shows his class with Nwaneri moment

It was brilliant to see Nwaneri in action at the highest-level English football has to offer.

However, the best moment involving the youngster came after the final whistle when the Arsenal fans went over to thank their loyal support.

With the Arsenal players standing and applauding the fans, Nwaneri followed suit but standing behind the main group of players, almost as if he was too modest to go and fully seize the acclaim.

Ramsdale noticed and instantly pushed Nwaneri up to the front of the pack to soak up the praise of the Gunners fans.

And Martinelli, to his credit, also sought to bring Nwaneri into the fold and put his arm around the youngster as the fans gave him a standing ovation.

It truly was a heartwarming moment that you can check out for yourself below.
