What Aaron Ramsdale said to Arteta after Liverpool defeat
Arsenal’s 4-0 loss to Liverpool on Saturday generated outrage, and Aaron Ramsdale was not left with what appeared to be the final conversations before putting the defeat behind them.
Arsenal had been unbeaten in their previous ten games and are improving under Mikel Arteta, but Ramsdale believes Liverpool demonstrated how far they still have to go to advance.
“I think it demonstrates their quality and where we want to go,” the goalkeeper remarked. “This isn’t going to be the game that defines our season.” It’s arguably the most difficult place to visit in the Premier League.
“We want to get to this point.” We’re not going to try to hide the fact that they’ve recently won the Champions League and the Premier League.
“Obviously, we had a game plan, but as a young team, we sometimes cling to it too rigidly, and we need to learn to be stronger with each other and converse more to weather the storm.”
“We’re aiming for the same level of quality that they have.” We’re working hard, and as I’ve said before, this is a marathon, not a sprint.”
They have travels to Manchester United and Everton after that, and Ramsdale has reminded his teammates that they must swiftly refocus.
“There will be no moping around with their heads bowed. “We’ll come in and assess the situation,” he said.
“We’re a trustworthy group of players.” We want to play that manner, so we’re putting our complete concentration on Newcastle now.
“Everyone was talking about us after [losing the first] three games [of the season], and then you go on a mini-run.” I don’t believe anyone hid [against Liverpool], despite the fact that we all made mistakes.
“We’re still trying to play our philosophy, and that’s how things are going.” Hopefully, with our squad, we’ll get to the point in our careers when we’ll be doing this to other teams.”
