Pundit Robbie Mustoe has voiced his concerns about David Raya’s performances and has urged Mikel Arteta to consider a change in Arsenal’s primary goalkeeper position. Raya was designated as the number one goalkeeper a few weeks ago, despite Aaron Ramsdale being in good form.
Raya, who arrived at Arsenal on loan from Brentford, is often regarded as the superior goalkeeper within the squad. However, both fans and pundits have noted that there isn’t a substantial gap in quality between him and Ramsdale.
In recent weeks, Raya has been responsible for a series of critical errors, with the most recent occurring in the match against Chelsea. These mistakes have cast a spotlight on his performance, leading to calls for Arteta to reevaluate the goalkeeping position at Arsenal.
After watching Raya’s latest blunder, Mustoe told The 2 Robbies Podcast:
“David Raya… If everything Mikel Arteta said and we’re to believe it, he should be out the side now.
“You’ve had a couple of circumstances and they’ve tried to play the ball out again, you gave it straight to the opponent who didn’t score in that situation.
“You can question whether his starting position was a little bit past the near post (for Mudryk’s goal). There’s been enough now given your player on the bench was so excellent last year and has done nothing wrong.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
We have trusted Arteta to make the right decisions on team selection since he became our manager and have to trust him on this decision as well.
It may not seem right, but it is what it is and it will be on Arteta if it goes wrong, he will know this and that is why we have to trust in his decision-making.
