Raya under pressure to perform
Mikel Arteta is adamant that David Raya doesn’t feel the pressure of playing for a big club, but after a few shaky performances he is in the spotlight.
The goalkeeper was hit by Mykhailo Mudryk’s cross at Chelsea on Saturday and fans chanted the name Aaron Ramsdale. With Ramsdale waiting in the wings, calls for Ramsdale to be deployed will increase if Raya struggles up top again.
Ramos was determined to turn back the years
After Sergio Ramos returned to his youth club, he wants to end his career on a successful note. The 37-year-old Ramos is still full of fighting spirit and has experience to match his physical style.
Ramos, never one to shy away from confrontation, was accused of elbowing Jude Bellingham over the weekend. The central defender will try to get closer to Gabriel Jesus and assert himself from the start.
Martinelli wants to shine in his Champions League debut
An injury has disrupted Gabriel Martinelli’s start to the season but he is now fit and ready to play and hopes to make his Champions League debut on Tuesday.
Martinelli is an important weapon for Arteta and gives Arsenal a directness that is different from the other wingers. He will try to switch positions with Jesus to confuse Sevilla’s defense and create space.
