Why Arteta shouted at Ramsdale as Arsenal solve their biggest problem from last season

The Japanese defender only arrived back from international duty on Thursday and had been involved in just one and a half training sessions with his new teammates.

And yet the 22-year-old rose above the odds facing him to put in an impressive display that suggests Edu may have secured something a coup by getting him so late in the window for just £18 million.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles was initially tried there but after a clash over his attitude to training and the return of Hector Bellerin from injury found himself out of the side.

Bellerin then struggled to cope with the demands Arteta wanted from players in the position, while Cedric and Calum Chambers have both taken turns at trying somehow to be worse than each other in the early games of this season.
