Interestingly enough, though, it was Leno who started the first three, the three that Arsenal lost, and Ramsdale the following three which the Gunners won.

The summer transfer window is approaching fast and with it come various rumours as usual. At the moment, Arsenal are trying hard to work out a deal to keep Martin Odegaard at the Emirates, but among plenty of other things (defenders and midfielders mostly), they are also reportedly on the lookout for a goalkeeper to take over from Bernd Leno as the No.1, should the German leave.

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has revealed that he is open to any path that may present itself to him regarding his future.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is hopeful that the red card received by David Luiz against Wolverhampton Wanderers will be overturned.

The Gunners were in a 0-1 lead at the Molineux, courtesy of a great goal by Nicolas Pepe in the 32nd minute, when Luiz was was judged in the final seconds of the first half to have committed a last-man foul on Wolves striker Willian Jose in the box. Referee Craig Pawson gave the penalty and sent the Brazilian to the dressing room directly, and his decision was upheld by John Moss in the VAR room. The misery soon got worse as Joao Moutinho scored another one for the home team four minutes after the break, and then turned to a complete disaster when Bernd Leno also received a red card for a rash trip out of the box and touching the ball with his hand there.

That may not be too relevant, but the departures of Sead Kolasinac and Shkodran Mustafi, who were both on that list, certainly are as they opened up two spots for foreign players to be added. Those spots have now been filled by goalkeeper Mat Ryan and attacking midfielder Martin Odegaard, both of whom arrived last month on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion and Real Madrid, respectively.
