(EFE) – A great performance by goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale allowed Arsenal to maintain the 0-2 achieved in the first 20 minutes of the game and take the three points from the Leicester City field.
The ‘Gunners’, who have not lost since August 28, achieved a very important victory against a direct rival in the fight for Europe thanks to 20 fantastic minutes and the performance of their goalkeeper.
Gabriel put Arteta in front with a header from a corner in minute 5 and Smith-Rowe, Arsenal’s ‘ten’, made the second after a poor clearance from the Leicester defense that left the ball dead inside the area.
It had been 20 minutes of enjoyment for Arsenal, but little by little Leicester began to play better and find themselves on the pitch, however, Ramsdale stopped them again and again.
The English goalkeeper, who cost 40 million pounds this summer, emerged as the hero of the match with several worthwhile saves, especially a popcorn in a James Maddison foul in which he also saved the rejection.
Harassment from the ‘Foxes’ increased in the second half, but Ramsdale got up to three heads up to achieve his fourth unbeaten goal in the league, one away from current Golden Gloves, Edouard Mendy, Alisson and Ederson, and be crowned the best man of the match.
With this victory, Arsenal placed fifth and returned to European positions for the first time since the fifth match of the previous season. The ‘Gunners’ have 17 points, the same as West Ham United, which is fourth, and five away from the leaders, Chelsea. Leicester is tenth with 14 points.
