Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale is already looking forward to next week's clash with Manchester United and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The pair will go head to head on Thursday when Arsenal travel to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United.

“I'd never thought I'd play against Ronaldo, but I really hope he's on it against us because it gives me a chance to test myself," said Ramsdale.

“As much as you want to go somewhere like that (Old Trafford) there's no better feeling than getting on top of someone and saying I've had a full-on battle with Ronaldo."

Arsenal go into this weekend's game with Newcastle, sat fifth in the Premier League and Ramsdale believes there is cause for optimism.

“You look at some of players over past few weeks who have even quite pivotal like Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka who are sort of kids," Ramsdale added.

“We're proving people wrong each week and aren't putting a ceiling to where we can take ourselves and how well we can do."
