A brief paternity leave After skipping Arsenal’s training session against Chelsea to give birth to his son, Aaron Ramsdale

In preparation for Arsenal’s game against Sevilla on Tuesday night, Aaron Ramsdale started working out again on Monday.


WHAT OCCURED? The England goalkeeper was absent from Saturday’s 2-2 draw between Arsenal and Chelsea at Stamford Bridge because his wife Georgina gave birth to their first child on Friday. Ramsdale did, however, take part in Monday’s morning workout, with Arsenal planning to reveal their traveling lineup for the Sevilla game afterward.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The 25-year-old is now vying with David Raya for the role after losing his spot as the Gunners’ primary goalkeeper last month. Ramsdale has only played once since Raya’s debut against Everton on September 17; that game was against Brentford in the third round of the Carabao Cup. As Arsenal defeated Brentford 1-0, Ramsdale preserved a clean sheet. Ramsdale may have a chance to rejoin the team because Raya has recently struggled.

THEN WHAT? On Tuesday, October 24, the Gunners will play Sevilla in the Champions League in an effort to get back to winning in Europe.
