Similarly, Arsenal’s goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has won the Premier League save of the month award for March for his outstanding save against Bournemouth.
Speaking about his award, Ramsdale said: “I’m very pleased, there’s been a few months where I’ve been nominated and better saves have won to be fair, but the save enabled us to stay in the game and eventually win it.
“We do quite a lot of work with our goalkeeping coaches doing spreads and one v ones.
The ball came across the box and Dom Solanke couldn’t get on it, and the winger took it first time. I knew I needed to get on the end of it, and it managed to hit me on the forearm so it was a nice save.
Ramsdale beat Alphonse Areola, Jose Sa, Illian Meslier, Fraser Forster and David Raya to the award.
