Dream Team's second-most popular goalkeeper misses out on regulation clean sheet against Everton | The Sun
IT finally happened.
Ever since Arsenal confirmed the recruitment of David Raya (£3.5m) on loan from Brentford, a sizeable chunk of Dream Team managers began to fear the day Aaron Ramsdale (£3.6m) would be rested/rotated/dropped.
And Sunday proved to be the day of reckoning for the 14.8% of Dream Team gaffers currently backing the England international as he was named as a substitute at Goodison Park.

Ramsdale could only watch on as his team-mate registered a regulation clean sheet against Everton, the joint-lowest scorers in the Premier League this season.
On paper, the fixture was a golden chance for Ramsdale owners to reap the benefits of a clean sheet but it was Raya who banked seven points – the Spaniard only had one shot on target to deal with all game.
While somewhat predictable, this was a significant development in the world of Dream Team as Ramsdale is the second-most popular goalkeeper at the time of writing – only Ederson (£4.2m) appears in more teams.
Surely the former Sheffield United custodian can't maintain such a lofty status now hes a rotation risk?
Ramsdale backers only have themselves to blame as Mikel Arteta has made it very clear that Raya is too good to sit on the bench all season.
"I cannot have two players like this in one position and not play them," the Gunners' boss told the BBC. "David has tremendous qualities like Aaron has… we have to use them."
