Arsenal star Aaron Ramsdale is the best goalkeeper in the Premier League and his stats back that claim.

Almost every Gooner was sceptical about signing the Englishman last summer. He had been relegated twice in two seasons and most of us couldn’t understand what Mikel Arteta and Edu Gaspar saw in him.

Arsenal ignored everyone and decided to sign him, and that has proved to be the right decision. Ramsdale has been absolutely incredible and he is the best goalkeeper in the Premier Lague at the moment.

Stunning Aaron Ramsdale stat shows he’s the best goalkeeper in PL

Since Ramsdale came into the side to replace Bernd Leno, the Englishman has kept 11 clean sheets in the Premier League. Only Ederson (14) and Alisson (12) have a better record, but the two Brazilians have played more games.

Diving deeper into goalkeeping statistics, Ramsdale’s goal-prevention rate in the Premier League this season shows why he’s head and shoulders above everyone else in the country at the moment.

Wolves’ Jose Sa ranks second with 1.36 and Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy comes next with 1.21. Emi Martinez, who still feels he should’ve been Arsenal number one, ranks 16th in the league with a rate of just 0.88.

The Insider’s View:

Every Arsenal fan, pundit and members of the media who criticised the Gunners’ interest in Ramsdale back in the summer should hold their hands up and apologise.

The Englishman has proven so many people wrong over the last six months and the initial £24 million we paid for him looks like one of our best-ever bargains.

Another massive positive for Arsenal is the fact that Ramsdale is still only 23. That means he has over a decade of top-level football left in him and he’ll only get better in the coming years.

Ramsdale’s already so good and we can’t wait to see how incredible he’ll be when he reaches his prime.
