The 58-year-old Gunners legend won two Premier League titles and four FA Cups with the club
It comes just days after the pair gave a hilarious post-match interview at the Emirates Stadium after the current Gunners side topped it three times.
Asked by the presenter if he saw Seaman – who won two Premier League titles and four FA Cups with the club – when he was younger, Ramsdale, 23, joked: ‘I’m not that old!’
The former Sheffield United goalkeeper went on, adding that he was frustrated when he handed Son Heung-min: “I would have liked to have kept a clean sheet, I’m a bit annoyed with myself because of the goal.
“If I keep my body weight forward, I think I’m saving it and it’s about the post.

“But this place was great today, the strikers were excellent, the defenders were excellent, I’m buzzing about this. This is a great day and hopefully it will be like that every time we play them.”
“To be honest I had a cramp in my calves for about 20 minutes, I must have had four energy gels so I will be wide awake for a long time.
Speaking of his excellent save from Lucas Moura’s misfire, the England goalkeeper added: ‘We are proud of our defense, Ainsley [Maitland-Niles] tried to get a block on it, managed to get a deflection that probably didn’t help.
‘I managed to jump and get my hands on it and luckily it came off the bar and reliable [Takehiro] Tomiyasu cleared it and we got away with just one goal and three points.”

Seaman showed support for Ramsdale’s signing even before he joined, comparing it to the situation he found himself in when he joined the club in 1990 and his fight with former goalkeeper John Lukic.
“There are a lot of similarities with when I came to Arsenal. I was England’s No. 3 at the 1990 World Cup, Ramsdale did the same.” Zeeman told talkSPORT last month.
“I got a lot of sticks because the fans didn’t want me. They all sang ”Lukic is better than Seaman” and ”You’ll never play for Arsenal”.
“There are some similarities and hopefully he will have a very good career at Arsenal.
“He’s still learning, you see. Will he walk into the team? I do not think so. I think he needs to start training, impress the manager and also get the respect of the boys.”
