Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has revealed that Jamie Vardy is the toughest opponent he’s ever faced in his career.
Ramsdale has come up against several strikers in his 97 games in the Premier League but feels that the Leicester City man’s determination and work ethic makes the veteran so tough to face.
“The one I hate playing against most is Jamie Vardy. The guy just doesn’t stop running. I’d love to have him on my team, hate playing against him. I’ve played against him five times now, he’s scored four times,” Ramsdale said.

The keeper who has been relegated twice with AFC Bournemouth and Sheffield United has been part of the resurgent Arsenal side that are doing all they can to qualify for the Champions League next season.
He was initially expected to act as back-up to incumbent No 1 Bernd Leno, but has overtaken the German in the pecking order, and is now clear first-choice for Mikel Arteta’s side.
Apart from his club duties, the player is challenging Jordan Pickford for the England jersey as they head to the 2022 World Cup.
