Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has denied assertions that losing to PSV Eindhoven yesterday was a wake-up call.
The Gunners suffered their first defeat in the Europa League after falling to a 2-0 defeat away from home. It was a poor performance from Arsenal from start to finish.
Arteta’s team needed to avoid losing in order to top the group, now they have to win their last game against Zurich at home next week.
Ramsdale stated to the press after the game:
“At the Southampton game we knew what went wrong and obviously we will look at what went wrong in this game in more depth.”
“The manager is great giving us the detail we need to improve. So I don’t think it’s a reality check, I just think we need to go back to what we were doing, our basics better, than what we have shown in the past two games.”
“We would have loved to have done it tonight, but we have got one more game to seal top spot. That’s what we will be going for at home in front of our fans and hopefully we will put on a better display as tonight wasn’t good enough.”
“The travelling fans travelled out here and we didn’t put in a shift for them really.”
