‘Give him the Ballon d’Or’, ‘superb’ – Some fans praise Arsenal star after Wolves game

By on November 12, 2018


Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Wolves was hugely disappointing but if there was one positive to take from the game it was the performance of Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

The German had to be patient for his chance at the No.1 shirt since arriving from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer as Unai Emery initially stuck with Petr Cech between the sticks at the start of the season.

However, an injury to the 36-year-old last month opened the door for Leno and it’s safe to say he’s taken his opportunity with both hands after putting in a string of impressive performances in recent weeks.

Arsenal’s outfield players were all below par on Sunday as we toiled to a rather lucky 1-1 draw against Wolves but Leno was excellent as he produced a Man of the Match performance to maintain our 16-match unbeaten run.

Wolves took the lead in the 13th minute and they could have been out of sight had it not been for Leno’s brilliance between the sticks as he kept us in the game with some fine stops and his hard work paid off as Henrikh Mkhitaryan came off the bench to score an 86th minute equaliser.

Fans hoped we’d push on to find a late winner but it was Wolves who could have won it as they had two great chances in injury time, but once again Leno produced the goods to salvage a point.

His performance didn’t go unnoticed as many fans have taken to social media to praise the German stopper with one supporter suggesting he’s given the Ballon d’Or now. [He spelled it wrong but we got the idea!].

Other fans hailed Leno as ‘superb’, ‘fantastic’ and ‘phenomenal’ following his display against Wolves so it looks like he’s won over the supporters and we have a safe pair of hands between the sticks for years to come.
