There are awe-inspiring moments on the sporting field that makes the fans wonder how did the player pull that off. But in reality, there is often a lot of skill, hard work, perseverance and sometimes all of it just comes together to shape such a defining moment.
Football fans witnessed one such piece of brilliance from Arsenal's Aaron Ramsdale who produced an outrageous world-class double save to deny Leicester City a goal during their ongoing Premier League match at the King Power Stadium.
While the Gunners star was ridiculed when he was signed by the club only a few backed him to come good. However, with his recent performances, he has surely won the hearts of several Arsenal fans. In the ongoing game, 23-year-old produced a superb save when James Maddison's free-kick appeared to be going straight into the nets but out of nowhere came Ramsdale with a full stretched dive towards his left.
Although there was an opportunity again for Leicester City to net their first goal on the rebound, the goalie was alert again and prevented them from pulling one back right them after Arsenal had already taken a 2-0 lead.
The video of Ramsdale's efforts is going viral. Check it out here:
Later, Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers was shown looking on in disbelief as his side failed to gain a way back into the game after having conceded two goals in the first half of the match itself. While Gabriel netted in the 5', it was Emile Smith Rowe who scored in the 18'.
As things stand now, the Gunners are the fifth place in the points tally and are favourites to clinch the three points from this position. They already have 17 points from 10 matches. Meanwhile, their opponents who are 0-2 down in the second half as of now are placed at the 10th position with 14 points from 10 matches.
Meanwhile, it was earlier revealed that Arsenal will host Sunderland in the quarter-final of the EFL Cup. Sunderland happen to be the lowest-ranked side in the competition and the only side which is not in Premier League to feature in the last eight.
