Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has played down his decision to replace England goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale with David Raya against Everton on Sunday.

Raya, who joined on loan from Brentford this summer, started his English Premier League debut for Arsenal in their 1-0 win.

Ramsdale played in all 38 of the Gunners’ league games last season.

Arsenal will make their first UEFA Champions League appearance since the 2016-2017 season against PSV Eindhoven tomorrow before playing Tottenham in Sunday’s north London derby.

Arteta suggested he will continue to rotate Ramsdale and Spain’s Raya and added there had been previous occasions during his Arsenal tenure when he wanted to switch goalkeepers mid-match.
