Aaron Ramsdale went on with his near-perfect inception to his Arsenal career, enabling the Gunners to a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa at The Emirates Stadium on Friday night

Aaron Ramsdale could be Arsenal’s unrivaled No.1 for now, but the summer signing isn’t taking any chances for now.

The 23-year-old’s entrance to the Gunners from Sheffield United divided fans, to say the least, with many speculating the Gunners had paid too much for a goalkeeper who had a somewhat bad record of being with teams that had been relegated in back-to-back seasons.

Nevertheless, after replacing Bernd Leno three games into the Premier League season, Ramsdale has quickly established himself as a fan favorite with some outstanding feats.

Since he was recruited into Mikel Arteta’s starting XI against Norwich last month, Arsenal Have picked up 14 points from a possible 18 and are unbeaten in those six matches.

As well as aiding his new side to three clean sheets, Ramsdale’s proficiency on the ball has also been a big gain in comparison to Leno’s more unstable distribution.

Aaron Ramsdale has commandeered Arsenal’s No 1 keeper position and Bernd Leno is anticipated to be called back to the starting lineup on Tuesday night when Arsenal takes on Leeds United in the Carabao Cup at the Emirates.

Ramsdale began the competition as the starting ‘keeper, but that has rapidly switched back to the German, who is now the back-up in north London.

But Aaron Ramsdale has said he is not going to let his current position in the squad fool him as he could be replaced if he makes any mistake.

“It could quite easily be taken away, just as quickly as I got in,” he told AFC Wimbledon’s official site. “For me, it’s to stay in the team week-by-week and keep producing good performances which the team and the staff are happy with.

“That’s all I’m bothered about. I’m loving the connection I’ve got with the fans there like I did here, but ultimately, they are not the ones picking the team. If I keep the manager happy, which I’m doing now, I’ll be doing well.”

Arteta is prepared to make numerous changes for Tuesday’s tie with Leeds, having given his “weakest” players a chance to prove themselves in previous matches.
