Lots of Arsenal fans have been criticising the performance of Bernd Leno in their 1-0 home defeat to Everton in the Premier League on Friday night.
The Germany international made an almighty blunder as he somehow managed to divert Richarlison’s tame cross into his own net, which ended up costing his team all three points at the Emirates Stadium.
Should Arsenal drop Leno?
It is not the first time he has made a bad mistake which has ultimately cost his side, notably receiving a red card away at Wolves in February when the Gunners were already down to 10 men, bizarrely deciding to rush out of his goal and handling the ball outside of the penalty area.
With such a vital game coming up away at Villarreal in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final on Thursday night, Mikel Arteta now has a big decision to make in terms of whether he should drop the 29-year-old for Mat Ryan.
Arsenal fans on Leno display
These Arsenal supporters on Twitter blasted Leno’s performance, with one Gooner even going as far as to claim that the goalkeeper is a ‘fraud’:
“I’ve always been Arteta in but if he persists with Leno I fear I will lose faith in the process #AFC #Arteta #Leno”
“How’s Leno pitting that in!?! Nah that is dreadful. Wasn’t even an effort on target! #AFC”
“Leno should be dropped for rest of season. Give Ryan the shirt, at least he tried hard. #KroenkeOut #ArtetaOut #AFC”
“Bernd Leno is a shambles who gets away with murder every week #afc”
“Leno is such a fraud, not even in the same league as Martinez. But I guess he is not the only 1 in the club that’s just there for the pay check. #Arsenal #Afc #Leno”
“Bernd Leno is an absolutely abysmal keeper. Since the injury he has been worse than useless #Arsenal #afc”
