Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang might have scored two goals and the Gunners defence might have leaked two goals, but that did not stop a lot of fans from taking to Twitter to hail the performance of goalkeeper Bernd Leno.
The 27-year-old German was in superb form in goals and if he hadn’t been, it would be fair to say that Norwich would have taken all three points in the first game of the post-Unai Emery era at Arsenal.
Here is a selection of some of the tweets:

WHAT A SAVE LENO. Bernd is so underrated, he's been our best player this season.

Has Leno been Arsenal’s best player this season? If he has then there is a limited number of players who could challenge him for that honour.
Aubameyang scored his 11th and 12th goals of the season at Carrow Road and is probably the only other player for the Gunners who could match Leno in terms of performances.
Leno has been consistently good, that is what the key has been for him.
The former Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper is yet to disappoint the Arsenal supporters in 2019/20.
AUBA makes it 2-2, then LENO makes an amazing save to keep it level! pic.twitter.com/IL1AMHumks

Without Leno, Arsenal would have probably lost by one or two goals at Norwich.
The Germany international, especially in the second half, made a number of very impressive saves to keep the likes of Teemu Pukki and Todd Cantwell at bay.
Arsenal’s defence is woeful and if anything is a lot worse now than it ever was under Arsene Wenger’s time in charge.
But at least the Gunners have Leno in goals, otherwise this season could somehow be a lot more embarrassing than it is.
Leno is amazing. Much better than Lloris and Kepa
