The 23-year-old got off to the perfect start, keeping a clean sheet as the Gunners recorded three points for the first time this season.

Now, some Arsenal fans seem to think this means the No.1 shirt is Ramsdale’s to lose from this point on, with Burnley up next.

In fairness, they might just be right.
