ARSENAL NEWS: Mikel Arteta has chosen Arsenal’s No. one goaltender

David Raya now has a chance to stake out the No. 1 spot for Arsenal thanks to Mikel Arteta.

David Raya is poised to defeat Aaron Ramsdale and take over as the undisputed No. 1 for the team.

News, analysis, and insider information about Arsenal.

Prior to the international break, the England international had started all four Premier League games; however, last weekend, when the Gunners returned to action against Everton, he was moved to the bench of substitutes.

In a rare 1-0 victory at Goodison Park, summer acquisition David Raya made his debut.

He kept his spot in last night’s crushing Champions League victory over PSV Eindhoven.

According to The Mirror, Raya, who originally joined on loan from Brentford, put on another impressive performance and is now the clear favorite to start against Spurs in Sunday’s north London derby at the Emirates Stadium.

Some pundits criticized and cautioned Arsenal for their decision to sign the 28-year-old to compete against Ramsdale, but manager Mikel Arteta is confident he can keep both satisfied.

Given Ramsdale’s impressive performances for England as a goalkeeper last season, Raya was asked if he had to think he could unseat him. Raya responded, “Of course, it is something every player has to do – to back yourself to get in the team.

That is why I moved to Arsenal and try to do my best for the team when I’m selected.”.

“The hardest thing to do is to never know when you’re going to play,” said someone. Making your debut for a team like Arsenal is obviously made harder for you by having Aaron as a teammate, but it happened quickly and you never know when it will happen, so you must be prepared.

“Playing at the highest level is a dream come true for me, so I’m very happy to make my debut, but the main thing was the result, and we got the three points in the end, so that is the main thing,” the player said.’.

When asked whether the goalkeepers might be switched frequently throughout the season, Raya responded, “I understand that and I think it is the first time that two top goalkeepers are in the same team.”.

The gaffer wants two top players for each position, so that is what we have to work with.

That is just a fact of modern football.

We will now wait and see what happens on Sunday after I have played the last two games.

“I’ve only been chosen for the last two games; that is just the gaffer’s choice; that is his choice, not mine.

When Aaron comes in, he’ll need to fight just as hard for the team and to win games.

“He (Ramsdale) has been fantastic; he is also a great teammate and leader.

The main thing is that we are teammates, and he is a great kid and goalkeeper as well.

At the end of the day, we are teammates.
