Arsenal vs Tottenham: What has been said? 

Arsenal started with David Raya in goal last time out with Arteta deciding to drop Aaron Ramsdale to the bench. 

The Gunners boss explained his decision and whether the goalkeeper rotation will be happening regularly throughout the season. 

He said: “It’s something that has been historically done like this, but I cannot have two players like this in one position and not play them.

“It’s like this. I’m a really young manager. I’ve been in this job three and a half years and I have few regrets with what I’ve done.

“One of them was that in two occasions, I felt after 60 minutes and 85 minutes, in two games, in this period, to change the ‘keeper in that moment. But I didn’t do it. I didn’t have the courage to do it.

“But I’m able to take a winger, or a striker off, or put a central defender on to drop to a back-five and hold that result. We drew those games and I was so unhappy.

“Someone is going to do it, and maybe it will be *gasps*. That’s strange? Why? Why not? 

“We have all the qualities in another goalkeeper to do something when something is happening and you want to change momentum. Do it.”
