Arteta Makes Decision on Arsenal’s no.1 as Raya, Ramsdale Battle for Spot
- David Raya and Aaron Ramsdale are currently both on Arsenal's books
- Raya, who joined the Gunners this summer, looks set to replace Ramsdale as the club's No.1
- The Spaniard has started two of Arsenal's latest fixtures, including in the Champions League
Mikel Arteta has reportedly settled on Arsenal's first-choice goalkeeper for this season, choosing between Aaron Ramsdale and David Raya.
Ramsdale was the Gunners' No.1 last season, and his heroics helped the north Londoners challenge for the Premier League title.
However, his position is under threat from Raya this term, following the shot-stopper's arrival from Brentford this summer.
Ramsdale has not featured for the north Londoners in two of their most recent fixtures, with Arteta preferring Raya ahead of him.
Who is Arsenal's No.1?
The Mirror now claims that Raya is set to become Arsenal's undisputed No.1 this season.
Whereas the Spaniard has insisted that the two keepers will rotate, all signs point at him keeping the Brentford ace between the sticks.
So tense is the situation, that Raya was recently forced to speak out on it, maintaining that he has a good relationship with Ramsdale.
"I have played the last two games and now we see what happens on Sunday. I've just been selected the last two games, that is just the choice of the gaffer – that is his choice, not my choice and when Aaron comes in he will need to also fight for the team and to win games," he said.
"Aaron has been great, he is a great team-mate, a leader as well. He is a great lad and a great keeper as well, we are team-mates and that is the main thing. We are team-mates at the end of the day," he added.

Arteta makes admission about Arsenal
Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Arteta gave a refreshingly honest interview after his side’s 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday, September 20.
Victory for the Gunners in the Group B Champions League encounter was wrapped up in the first half as they scored three goals to put the game beyond the visitors.
Bukayo Saka found the opener after eight minutes before Leandro Trossard made it 2-0 after running onto a perfectly laid ball from Saka.
