Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has said he is “suffering and hurting” after losing his spot to David Raya.

Ramsdale had been Mikel Arteta’s first choice since he joined in 2021.

The Englishman played all 38 Premier League games last season, but has been benched for the last four league matches, as Arteta has favoured Raya, who arrived on loan from Brentford in August.

“I think because it’s one of the first times it’s happened with the situation it has been difficult.

“There are days where I come in and I’m down because of the situation and he picks me up and for whatever reason there might be a day where he’s down and even though I’m suffering and hurting for not playing I have to stand up and be able to push him,” Ramsdale told reporters.
