Aaron Ramsdale is being hailed for making one of the best saves in years after denying James Maddison a free-kick right before the half-time whistle.

Arsenal defeated Leicester 2-0 due to an explosive start that saw two goals in twenty minutes.

Maddison, however, could have scored a completely different scoreline when he landed his free kick at the area’s edge.

As Ramsdale scrambled to his goalmouth, he had to hold his head in order to avoid being thrown off.

Ramsdale was not done. He was immediately called back to action, denying Johnny Evans.
