A selection of Arsenal fans have praised the performance of Bernd Leno during the club’s 3-2 win over Everton in the Premier League on Sunday.
The Gunners went 1-0 down within the opening minute of the game but they managed to take the lead by the 33rd minute after goals from Eddie Nketiah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
However, they ended the half in disappointing fashion as Richarlison scored with a tame effort and Leno was to blame for the goal, given he should have taken the command of the situation in the six-yard box.
After the interval, Aubameyang scored within 30 seconds with a second-headed goal from as many games and that proved the eventual winner for the Gunners.
Still, they had plenty of work to do during the course of the second half and Leno, who was at fault for the Toffees’ second goal redeemed himself in superb fashion.
The 27-year-old denied Calvert-Lewin from point-blank range after Granit Xhaka had played the striker onside. Thereafter, he came up with a Manuel Neuer style clearance as he came out of the box to clear the danger in front of Richarlison, who managed to get behind the Gunners backline.
There was certainly some frustration from the fans with Leno’s poor handling in the opening half but he thoroughly made up for the same after the interval and proved why he should be the leading contender for the club’s Player of the Year accolade.
Here are some of the fans’ reactions:
