Arsenal fans on Twitter over the moon with Leno’s assured performance

Arsenal have been lacking a quality goalkeeper for years. The Gunners have needed someone they can rely on between the sticks and in Bernd Leno they have just found that person. The German shot-stopper was sublime against Leicester City and deserves all the praise he’s been getting.

Leno signed for Arsenal over the summer but his move was overshadowed as Jack Wilshere left the club on the same day he was announced. However, there was nothing that could overshadow his performance against Leicester yesterday as he produced a fine save to deny Harry Maguire early on. The only reason he was beaten was because of a Hector Bellerin own goal and even after conceding he looked just as assured.

The ex-Bayer Leverkusen man looks to be the real deal and the supporters were delighted with his distribution, reading of the game and his handling on a night where it easily could have gone wrong against a plucky Leicester side. The only blot on his record was a corner which he came out for and was left in no-mans land as Wilfred Ndidi crashed a header off of the bar. However, the Arsenal fans won’t remember that and will instead just be delighted with the German’s commanding display.
