Arsenal fans went mad for Aaron Ramsdale's 'save of the season' which saw the keeper stop Bournemouth's three-on-one attack.
The Cherries had taken an early lead within 10 seconds of the Prem clash courtesy of Philip Billing's toe poke, after he latched onto Dango Ouattara's elusive through ball. And Billing nearly helped Bournemouth double their lead after he burst down the left flank to drive to ball into the path of Dominic Solanke, whose shot was parried away by Ramsdale.
And the Gunners keeper's rapid reflexes kept the ball out of the net when Ouattara tried to pounce on the rebound. Ramsdale's heroics delighted the Gunners faithful who took to Twitter to praise the goalie.

One fan raved: "Ramsdale with save of the season. Bailed us there big time." Another user gushed: "Just insane from Ramsdale. SENSATIONAL save."
Then a third enthused: "Amazing save by Ramsdale to cover Saliba’s dodgy positioning there." Before a fourth person declared: "Huge save Ramsdale massive."

The Gunners star's latest block comes after he was nominated for February's Premier League Save of the Month when he denied Aston Villa star Leon Bailey's goal-bound effort.
However, the 24-year-old was powerless to prevent the Cherries from snagging a second goal through Marcos Sensei in the 57th minute.
But in the end, Ramsdale's save proved to be vital as the Gunners clawed themselves back from a looming 2-0 defeat to win the match 3-2, and preserve their five-point lead over Man City. Strikes from Thomas Partey and Ben White brought the scores level.
Then Reiss Nelson emphatically clinched victory for Mikel Arteta's side in the closing stages of the match when he picked up the ball on the edge of the area to rifle home a powerful left-footed shot. However, Arsenal fans insist they should've had a number of penalties in the game which saw a slew of handball claims turned down by VAR.
