Arsenal goalkeeper Raya delighted after victory over Man City: We always were a threat



Arsenal goalkeeper David Raya was floating after their 1-0 win against Manchester City.

The Spaniard was delighted keeping a clean sheet against the title holders.


Raya told the club’s website: “The flavour is we are very happy with the three points. The clean sheet was very important at home especially, and the three points against City obviously. It’s a massive game especially before we head off for the international break, and we want to kick on before the next game against Chelsea.



“I think the first half was a little bit more edgy, they pressed very well. It was tough for us to play out from the back, so that’s why we tried a few more long balls, because when we were playing short, they were coming on top. We were giving them transitions, and we know they’re one of the best teams in transitions, so I think it was a good first half, but we could have done better. And that’s what we did in the second half, we came out knowing what we had to do, and we hurt them a lot with our threats especially in behind, and that’s why we won the game.”

On his settling in process, the summer arrival added: “Obviously we’re growing every single day, it’s still early days. I just need some more game time to get the relationship with them. Obviously, they’re great footballers, every single player has helped me to adapt to the team as much as possible, likewise with the staff.”
