'Poor': Ex-England man slams Arsenal player for his performance against Leicester
Paul Robinson has slammed Aaron Ramsdale for his performance for Arsenal against Leicester City yesterday.
The England goalkeeper conceded two against the Foxes in what ended up being a comfortable 4-2 win for the Gunners. However, Ramsdale had a bit of a nightmare with the opening goal – an own goal from William Saliba – and was then beaten at his near post by James Maddison.
And speaking on Stadium Astro, former England and Leeds goalkeeper Paul Robinson said that Ramsdale simply had to do better with both goals.
“I thought both goalkeepers were poor today, to be honest. You can’t defend the goalkeeping today. As Saliba heads the ball you look at Ramsdale’s position, he’s in what you call no mans land. Saliba’s not expecting his goalkeeper to be there,” Robinson said on Stadium Astro.
“He’s gone too high up, Saliba looks up and hopes his goalkeeper is back. But Ramsdale ends up no mans land and he causes his defender a problem.”
Robinson also slammed Ramsdale for the second Leicester goal, adding there was ‘no way he should be beaten from there’ and should have just got any part of his body in the way to stop the shot from Maddison.
TBR’s View: Ramsdale Always Has A Mistake In Him
Anyone who watched Ramsdale at Sheffield United will know full well there is a mistake in there. Yes, that year with the Blades was a busy one for him and he had a poor defence in front of him. But he still made errors.
Yesterday was an example of those lapses in concentration perhaps creeping back into Ramsdale’s game.
He is still a top young goalkeeper and should make the England squad this summer. However, these little errors in performance and communication need to be ironed out.
