Premier League

Arteta risks fans outcry if he replaces this player for Spurs match

Arsenal takes on Tottenham in a London derby match in which both Mikel Arteta and Nuno Espirito Santo have a lot to prove to their respective fans that they are the right coaches for the job. Tottenham has lost two games in a row in the Premier League, while Arsenal has won two games in a row.

For Arsenal fans, the two victories ahead of the Premier League game on Sunday evening are a confidence boost, and with bragging rights on the line, many have spoken up to ask Arteta not to make one of the selection choices that have been predicted. According to reports, Arteta may reintroduce Bernd Leno to the starting lineup after keeping him out of the last two league games, relegating Ramsdale to the bench.

Dropping Ramsdale after such an impressive run in the league would be unjust, as evidenced by the fact that he has kept two clean sheets in the league, whereas Leno has failed to keep a clean sheet in three games in which he has conceded nine goals.

Gabby Aghbanolar, a Tottenham legend, had this to say about whether Arteta would drop Leno for Ramsdale. "No chance. 100 per cent of the time, he’ll change his mind. He’s asking to be stoned by Arsenal fans if he does that. Arsenal against Burnley were outstanding and Ramsdale was outstanding. You can’t just keep changing goalkeepers. It’s absolute nonsense. The only reason you should change a keeper is for cup games or injuries. There’s no chance he drops Ramsdale. Leno will play in the cup and Ramsdale will be back for the North London derby. "
