Arsenal goalkeeper Ramsdale: We've learned not to panic in games; it's fun

Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale says they’ve learned not to panic in games this season.

Sitting five points clear at the top of the table, Arsenal’s campaign has become notable for their late winners.

Ramsdale told the London Evening Standard: “At the end of last season, we panicked in certain games, I think we have learned from [that].

“I think we know how to deal with that a lot better now.

“It doesn’t mean we’re not going to go into a game and panic again. But for the majority, we know what is needed and how to play and how to conduct ourselves. We are a young team we had a really tough one last year missing out on the top four and to Tottenham then it’s even more [tough], so we’re learning game by game. I think huge credit goes to the staff but also for our failure last year.”

Manchester City play before Arsenal in the next three rounds of fixtures, giving Pep Guardiola’s side the chance to pile the pressure on Arteta’s young squad.

But Ramsdale continued: “Deep down as a footballer, you know what’s going on. You know when City have won and the gap is to potentially [down to] two points or five points. But the feeling we’ve got at football club at a minute, especially for me, I’m just having so much fun.

“It’s just like playing with your mates again. You have a feeling you’re going to win but you don’t take it for granted. Suddenly you can be 2-0 up, 3-0 up and you’re on cruise control. It’s just a great feeling.”
