Arsenal supporters hailed Aaron Ramsdale’s incredible goal kick during their 2-1 loss to Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.
The north Londoners went into the match at the Emirates Stadium in fine form, winning their last five in all competitions and they took the lead through Bukayo Saka in the 32nd minute.
City then equalised shortly after half-time, with Granit Xhaka adjudged to have fouled Bernardo Silva in the box before Riyad Mahrez converted the spot-kick past Ramsdale.
The home side went down to ten men just two minutes after Mahrez’s striker as Gabriel Magalhaes received a second yellow card for a foul on countryman Gabriel Jesus just before the hour mark.
The Gunners were resolute in defence until the 93rd minute when Rodri poked home past Ramsdale before celebrating in front of the Emirates Stadium crowd.
Earlier on, though, Arsenal fans were left feeling aggrieved with referee Stuart Attwell, claiming they should have had their own penalty in the first half when Martin Odegaard was tackled by City goalkeeper Ederson.
Supporters noticed that it was ‘keeper Ramsdale who started that chance, playing a sublime long pass to Brazilian winger Gabriel Martinelli in the build-up to the incident.
@TRW91 said: “Has to be England’s number 1.”
@shadadza said: “wow Ramsdale is absolutely ridiculous what a pass bruv.”
@AFCOllyy said: “Ramsdale by the way, please note the pass.”
Manchester United icon Rio Ferdinand thought that the Gunners should have been given a spot-kick for the tackle on Odegaard, claiming that VAR made the wrong decision.
Ferdinand told BT Sport: “With VAR I don’t understand how that’s not given. In slow motion it’s clear and obvious. This clear and obvious stuff really frustrates me because it just clouds everything.”
