Most Arsenal fans would snap your hand off if you were to offer them a 3-1 home victory.
However, Aaron Ramsdale would most likely rather snap his own hand off than miss out on an opportunity to claim another clean sheet. After Mikel Arteta's side recorded a vital 3-1 victory against Aston Villa in October, the home dressing room was in an understandably jovial mood.
Thomas Partey, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Emile Smith Rowe were all on the scoresheet, before Villa ace Jacob Ramsey stole the clean sheet with a magnificent effort from 25 yards out. But while this moment of magic from the youngster did nothing to affect the result, it completely rattled the former Sheffield United ace.

Smiles erupted all around the dressing room post-match, yet Ramsdale could be seen throwing his gloves and shin-pads in sheer frustration.
"That was f***ing s*** man," the England international was heard saying to himself in episode three of the All of Nothing: Arsenal series. "Go with the f***ing player."
A beaming Mikel Arteta pranced into the dressing room to congratulate his players for a brilliant performance. He was then soon followed by Gunners' technical director Edu, who played a huge role in signing Ramsdale and many other Arsenal stars.

But while they were exchanging high fives and compliments, both figures made a bee-line towards Ramsdale, who was staring into the ground.
"That cost me the b****** clean sheet," Ramsdale was also heard chastising to himself. Fortunately for Ramsdale, he managed to get three clean sheets in his next three matches, as the Gunners knocked Leeds United out of the League Cup, before overcoming Leicester City and Watford 2-0 and 1-0 respectively.
He went on to finish the domestic campaign with 12 clean sheets, an impressive feat considering it was his first season at the Gunners. And if his reaction is anything to go by, his lofty demands and desire to keep a clean sheet will not be going anywhere.
