Aaron Ramsdale has been one of Arsenal’s best players since the return of league football, with his superb form helping the Gunners continue to win matches.
Mikel Arteta’s side can trust the Englishman to make stunning saves and preserve a clean sheet, but fans will be surprised to know he has been nursing a hand injury since he returned from Qatar.
Ramsdale remains behind Jordan Pickford in the Three Lions pecking order, so he did not see much action at the WC.
However, he revealed in a podcast that he has been playing with an injury over the last few weeks.
Ramsdale told The Fellas podcast: “I’ll tell you something about those gloves, if you look at the two middle fingers, there’s no gap. I broke my knuckle at the World Cup, so I’ve had to play, since the World Cup, with gloves like that.”
Just Arsenal Opinion
Ramsdale remains one of our key men and the goalie has delivered terrific performances for us since the return of football.
Continuing to play and perform well despite nursing an injury shows the mentality of the former Bournemouth man and how committed he is to keep playing for the club.
This is one reason fans love him and will continue to support him when he is in our red-and-white strip.

After the game on Sunday, he took his gloves off and I notice he had strapping on his middle finger on his right hand. That may well account for his weak punch of the ball that lead to Uniteds 2nd goal.
That second goal may also have been helped by the bizarre headband Martinez was wearing – how can a player expect to head a ball with a woolly strap across his forehead?
Some people may fear the unavailability of Partey,Saka etc.. I would include Ramsdale.. I have no faith in turner
Well, I believe Turner is a good goalkeeper and if he is given a chance to play regularly he would show how good he is with his match fitness increasing.
Ramsdale should be allowed to play even with a minor injury because the injury can get worse and it can cost us a few games.
I assume that was meant to be “Ramsdale *shouldn’t* be allowed to play…etc”?
And yes I also think Turner has played well after a shaky start and the consensus is that he had a good WC too.
Keepers are perhaps the one position you can judge at the WC, at least the shotstopping part and being error-free.
There is no much difference between the two gollies . Ramsdale must given time to recover
