Brendan Rodgers crowned Aaron Ramsdale as the best keeper in England after the shot-stopper produced another brilliant performance against Leicester in the Premier League. He pulled off a brilliant save to deny Harvey Barnes in the first half leading the Leicester manager to be convinced that he is indeed the best in the country. Ramsdale had produced a save of the season contender against Leicester earlier in the season when he saved a James Maddison free-kick.

“For me, he is the best English goalkeeper at the moment,” Brendan Rodgers said about Aaron Ramsdale. “He is top. His progression since he came to Arsenal, a huge club with a different expectation of how to play football, but he has dealt with that really well. He looks like he has grown into the club, he’s playing with a calmness; he was jumping about earlier in the season but now he’s got a real, nice calmness to his game. He plays well with his feet, but he makes saves. His save from Barnesy was a great save – the header looked in – and kept Arsenal in front. Having observed and watched the level of his game, he’s the best English goalkeeper at the moment.”

“I think the time it took to be awarded will probably tell you that it was harsh on, to be honest,” he added. “I think Caglar’s movement, it was a functional movement, it obviously touches his hand but it certainly wasn’t intentional and that was a huge disappointment for us in the game that we were well in. We’ve seen it all season some of the decisions, and it’s part of the luck that has gone against us. It’s happened to us a number of times over the course of the season, but hugely frustrating.”
