‘Very Shaky’ ‘Got To Be Holding On To That’ Fans Question Arsenal Star For His Part In City’s Goal

‘Very Shaky’ ‘Got To Be Holding On To That’ Fans Question Arsenal Star For His Part In City’s Goal

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has been criticised for his part in conceding Manchester City’s winning goal at the Etihad Stadium last night.

The German was unable to hold on to a shot from Phil Foden, pushing the ball out into a dangerous area, allowing Raheem Sterling to score from the rebound. It is not the first time this has happened and supporters on Twitter have been questioning the 28-year-old’s handling:

It must be said, it wasn’t a particularly powerful shot from Foden and, even if you are not able to hold on to the ball, you would expect your keeper to make sure it is pushed away from the danger zone.

To be fair to Leno, though, he has been in very good form for the most part at the start of this season. Fans shouldn’t forget his man of the match display against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup a few weeks back. He does, however, need to be better sometimes when dealing with shots.
