Leno & Arsenal
Arsenal’s current goalkeeping situation is something of a strange one.
Last season’s run-in saw Emiliano Martinez put on some starring displays for the north Londoners, playing a key role in their FA Cup final success.
However, over the summer, Arsenal made the decision to stick with Bernd Leno as their no.1, and ship Martinez off to Aston Villa.
Since the Argentine joined Villa, he has continued to impress, whilst Leno has looked somewhat underwhelming.
The German has made a number of high-profile mistakes this season, the latest of which came vs Everton last month:
That is an absolute shocker from Leno.

Leno happy at Arsenal
In turn, amid a fairly disappointing campaign, it was recently claimed that Leno is one of several players for sale at Arsenal this summer.
The Gunners stars on the market, as reported by football.london, are Leno, Hector Bellerin, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Sead Kolasinac.
However, during an ensuing interview, Leno has moved to assure that he remains happy at Arsenal, whilst making clear that not one of the club’s stars has revealed their intention to depart:
“I am still happy at Arsenal. Arsenal is still a big club, a big name in the world and in the Premier League.
“There is nobody in the dressing room who says ‘I want to leave the club, I am not happy here anymore’.
“We still have a good environment at the club and in the dressing room. Of course, at times it was not easy this season, but this is part of football.
“It’s not good to feel sorry for ourselves, we need to move forward and change it to a positive as soon as possible.”
