Arsenal duo told to study ‘fantastic’ Liverpool star to fix faltering form

The two Arsenal goalkeepers are currently struggling for form.

Former England and Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman believes that the duo of Aaron Ramsdale and David Raya should both study Liverpool’s Alisson Becker to improve their current form.

Mikel Arteta initially brought in Raya on loan at the start of the season to give competition to Ramsdale, before then agreeing a permanent transfer. The Spanish shot-stopper has since taken over the starting role from Ramsdale but has been caught out on a several occasions in recent weeks.

Most recently, he was at fault for two of Luton Town’s goals on Tuesday evening. However, he was bailed out by his teammates as Declan Rice’s added time last-gasp winner stole all three points.

Seaman claims that both have plenty to learn but insisted that the ‘fantastic’ Alisson is someone who they could both study. “I look at Alisson, Alisson’s one vs one characteristics are fantastic,” he told the Wrighty’s House Podcast. “If you watch him, everything will be moving – apart from his head. His head is totally focused on the ball. “There’s always things you can learn. That’s what I’m telling the goalkeepers at Arsenal. Watch these guys, watch the guys at the top-level, look what they do, to see what they do differently. Focus on their head like Alisson or with Ederson, where he doesn’t have a lot to do and all of a sudden he makes that save from stone-cold.”
