Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer Unanimously Agree on David Raya Verdict After Major Error in Arsenal vs Luton
Thierry Henry and Alan Shearer have analyzed David Raya’s performance in Arsenal’s thrilling 4-3 victory against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road. The winning goal came from Declan Rice in added time, securing Arsenal’s sixth consecutive win in all competitions from a Martin Odegaard cross.
Despite the win, it was anything but a routine victory, as Arsenal’s away goals conceded in the league doubled in a single game. While Gabriel Osho’s equalizer following Gabriel Martinelli’s opener was commendable, the two goals by Luton exposed shortcomings in Raya’s performance.
In one instance, Elijah Adebayo outjumped Raya, who had ventured off his line, and nodded the ball into an empty net from a corner.
Shortly after, Raya’s decision to attempt a hands save on Ross Barkley’s close-range shot proved to be a wrong choice, with the ball slipping under his body.


Post-match, Henry and Shearer expressed dissatisfaction with Raya’s second-half display. Henry acknowledged Aaron Ramsdale’s mistakes in a previous match but emphasized the need for goalkeepers to use their feet effectively.
Shearer spoke next with his ruling a damning indictment of Raya’s ability as a goalkeeper. He said: “There’s an obsession with having a footballing goalkeeper nowadays and sometimes the fundamentals are forgotten – shot stopping and coming to collect crosses, and you have seen them punished this evening. It’s a huge error here, he never looks comfortable. There is no one blocking him at all so there is no excuse, he can see the ball coming in. He doesn’t take the ball at its highest point. It’s a huge error from the goalkeeper.”
