Jamie O’Hara fears have no chance of winning the title while remains their No.1 goalkeeper.

The Spain international joined on loan in the summer from Brentford with confident he had found an upgrade on Aaron Ramsdale.

Raya, however, has failed to convince so far and made two more serious errors during last night’s chaotic seven goal thriller against Luton Town.

Arsenal, ultimately, moved five points clear the top ahead of the games involving Liverpool and Manchester City on Wednesday night, but O’Hara insists that Ateta’s faith in his goalkeeper will come back to haunt him.

‘I don’t believe Arsenal can win the league with that goalkeeper. If you look at the best teams that win the league every year, mostly Manchester City or Liverpool, they have the best keepers,’ said the former Spurs midfielder on talkSPORT.

‘Cech, Van der Sar, Schmeichel, Alisson, Ederson. For me Arsenal can’t win the league with David Raya in goal and that’s where I think they’ve got it wrong.

‘If you’re going to upgrade from Ramsdale you’ve got to upgrade properly. David Raya is not that guy and he will end up costing them.

‘Declan Rice stepped up tonight, Havertz scores as well. Big moment for them in the 96th minute. Brilliant and Arsenal fans will be buzzing but in the grand scheme of it David Raya is a problem for them. A massive problem.’

Asked to assess Raya’s performance at Kenilworth Road last night where he was at at fault for two goals, Arteta said: ‘We have to defend better the situations as a team.

‘There are certain things leading to the goals and it’s not about blaming, we have never done it, and we’re not going to do it now. It’s about how the team reacts to that, because it’s going to happen, and I love that response.

‘I think we can defend the goals much better, that’s for sure.’
