Goalkeeper David Raya is expected to remain in goal for Arsenal's Champions League game against Sevilla at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Tuesday.

The Gunners lost to Lens in their previous Group B fixture.

Raya has been preferred to last season's first-choice goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale in recent weeks.

However the Spaniard was at fault for Mykhailo Mudryk's goal in Saturday's 2-2 draw at Chelsea.

Asked if Raya is suffering with the increased attention following his move from Brentford, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said: "I haven't seen that at all.

"That's the pressure of playing in big clubs, where you have to win and you have to be at your best, and you have someone next to you who is pushing you every single day.

"That's the debate. That's the beauty of the game as well. The fact that you have other options as well is going to make that talk more frequent."

Ramsdale was missing from the Arsenal squad for the match against Chelsea at the weekend following the birth of his son.

However, the England goalkeeper has travelled to Spain with his team-mates and is available for selection.
