Ramsdale heroics, fixture chaos and fitness worries - Arsenal winners and losers at Brentford

From the first minutes, the Arsenal fans were singing his name. After such a hectic and controversial couple of weeks, getting minutes was vital for Aaron Ramsdale but to contribute in this way was even more key.

The save from Yoane Wissa's strike onto the post came after a barrage of abuse from the home crowd behind him. It was a statement save, an important clean sheet and a reminder to Mikel Arteta exactly what he’s capable of.

Questions as to who should have started the game in the absence of Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard on Sunday against Tottenham raged after the disappointing draw. Reiss Nelson’s name was one many felt was frustratingly snubbed by Arteta.

Against Brentford on Wednesday he delivered a goal which only strengthened that position. A calm and composed finish from Nelson will give him a boost and potentially throw his name into the ring for the trip to Bournemouth.

Goodness me how good was Jakub Kiwior? There’s something exciting about how unknown the Polish international remains to the majority of us who have seen so little of him prior to his arrival.

Outside of what was a world-class block to prevent the Brentford equaliser, his overall display was composed, measured and sharp as he continues to impress in the left-back position — but that block… just wow.

What Arsenal fans did to Aaron Ramsdale after Mikel Arteta makes David Raya decision

I almost was incredibly harsh and put the debutant Charles Sagoe Jr. into this list because, as debuts go, it was a quiet one. However, instead, and upon reflection there was an obvious sense that Ben White was not going to pass to him for the duration of the second half.
