On Sunday, Arsenal claimed a memorable 2-0 win over North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur during a feisty encounter, which particularly boiled over at the end of the match.
Ramsdale made a number of crucial saves to help Arsenal move eight points clear at the top of the Premier League log, but became exchanged in an altercation with Tottenham forward Richarlison at full time.

As the keeper went to collect some of his gear at the end of the match, a home team supporter leapt onto the advertising boards at the side of the pitch and could be clearly seen kicking the back of Ramsdale.
“The Spurs fans gave me some (chirps) throughout the game,” Ramsdale told Sky Sports. “I was giving some back. The people I did give it to greeted it in sportsmanlike terms but one fan tried to give me a little punch on the back.
“It is a shame as it is just a game of football at the end of the day. Both sets of players tried to bring me away but thankfully nothing too drastic happened. It is a sour taste but I’m sure we will enjoy it when we go back into the dressing room.”

Meanwhile, Tottenham promised to take the “strongest possible action”.
“We are appalled by the behaviour of a supporter that attempted to attack Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale at the end of today’s match,” Tottenham said in a statement. “Violence in any form has no place in football.
“The club has reviewed its CCTV footage to identify the supporter and will be working with the Met Police, Arsenal and Aaron Ramsdale to take the strongest possible action, including an immediate ban from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.”
The Professional Footballers Association (PFA) said such attacks are taking place “far too often”.
“Violence towards players is completely unacceptable. These types of incidents are happening far too often,” the PFA said in a statement.
“Players have a right to be safe in their place of work. When a player is attacked we expect the laws and regulations that are in place to protect them to be properly enforced.
“As the players’ union we treat this as a priority issue. We will be continuing to work with the authorities to demand that players and staff are better protected in their place of work.”
