Former Chelsea attacker, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has picked David Raya as Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper ahead of Aaron Ramsdale.
Hasselbaink said that Raya will continue to start in goal for Arsenal after securing his first start for Mikel Arteta’s side on Sunday against Everton.
Recall that Arsenal recently signed Raya on a season-long loan from Brentford over the summer transfer window.
The Spanish international is expected to challenge Ramsdale for Arsenal’s number one position.
Ramsdale had started the first four league games for Arsenal, with Raya now getting promoted to that position against Everton on Sunday.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Hasselbaink said, “They [Arsenal] paid a lot for Raya, and, I think, he is their No. 1, and, eventually, he was going to play.
“I think today is the first day that he will be a regular. I don’t see goalkeepers getting minutes here and there.
“They need rhythm. They need to stay in that momentum.”
