Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp commented on Aaron Ramsdale’s performance at Anfield this afternoon after the Arsenal number one ensured his side left Merseyside with a point.
The Liverpool boss spoke to Sky Sports after his side came from 2-0 down to earn a point against the Premier League leaders.
Aaron Ramsdale made a number of huge saves, specifically in the second-half, which kept Arsenal in front until the 86th minute when Roberto Firming headed home from inside the six-yard box with Aaron Ramsdale helpless.
The England international made a huge save one-on-one from Darwin Nunez in the second-half, as well as getting his finger tips to a Mo Salah deflected effort which was heading straight towards the top corner. And then, he managed to block Ibrahima Konate’s attempt from close range when the centre-back seemingly had the goal gaping.

Jurgen Klopp felt that Konate should have probably scored his opportunity, but he was still full of praise for Ramsdale’s performance in the incredible game.
“That one save, I think especially from Mo, that was exceptional. I think if Ibou uses his head, then the ball goes under the crossbar so it’s a goal because he cannot be there. But yes, he was exceptional.”
Many Arsenal players have had terrific seasons so far, which is the main reason why the Gunners currently find themselves top of the Premier League table. The consistency throughout the team has been really impressive and Aaron Ramsdale is definitely one of those players who have stepped up on a weekly basis this season.
If Arsenal go on and win the title, there are plenty of moments which you could look at as being pivotal to their success and Ramsdale’s display at Anfield will most definitely be one such moment.
