'Everyone went mental': Ramsdale shares funny story involving Arteta and Saka

The Arsenal goalkeeper held up the “I have never” card, while the defender admitted Saka had got him.

Both players said they had got the 20-year-old as well, before Holding asked Ramsdale about “the other week”.

“I was walking over and I heard a lot of screaming,” replied the keeper.

“And I saw the boss with his hands on his head and Bukayo running around.

“So there was one meg, and as I was walking over, I seen another one, and that’s when the boss blew his whistle.

“Everyone went mental, Bukayo megs the boss twice!”

It’s always great to hear training-ground stories like this, which shows there’s a great sense of camaraderie at Arsenal.

Also, the fact a Saka nutmeg question featured shows just how talented the 20-year-old is.

Saka has become a crucial player for Arsenal and England alike, and it’ll be great to see just how better he can still become.

Arsenal are back in action on Monday night, when they head to Crystal Palace.

The Gunners are currently fourth in the Premier League table, three points ahead of fifth-placed Tottenham.

In addition, Arsenal have a game in hand on their north London rivals.
