‘The Next Jens Lehmann’ – Lots Of Arsenal Fans Hail Star After Excellent Europa League Display


Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno made his second consecutive start in the Europa League last night, making his fourth appearance in all for the Gunners.

The 26-year-old had to be in good form against Qarabag, and he was required to make a few good saves to ensure Unai Emery’s side kept a clean sheet against the Azeri outfit.

Fans on Twitter were quick to praise Leno for his display:

Some think that he could displace Petr Cech when the veteran returns from a hamstring injury:

Leno really has a chance to stake his claim for the number one spot over the next month with Cech sidelined. He certainly showed what he can do against Qarabag, and Arsenal supporters will be hoping for more of the same over the coming weeks.

Many expected the German to come into the first team straight away after his £22.5m move from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, but it has taken him a while to settle in.
