Concerning Bernd Leno stat emerges following Arsenal’s win over Rapid Wien

Arsenal see off Rapid Wien

Arsenal’s Europa League campaign kicked off on Thursday evening.

After clinching the 2020 FA Cup, the Gunners were afforded a berth in the Europa League group stages, despite finishing 8th in the Premier League.

Arsenal have since been drawn in Group B, along with Molde, Dundalk and Rapid Wien.

The north Londoners’ first European tie of the season saw them travel to Austria for a clash with the latter of this trio on Thursday.

The headline news pre-match surrounded Thomas Partey being handed his first start as a Gunner.

However, despite putting on a solid display, Partey could do little to influence Arsenal’s rather lackluster first-half.

The score at the break was 0-0, with Wien having gone on to take the lead six minutes into the second 45.

To their credit, though, after going 1-0 down, Arteta’s side stepped it up a gear, with goals from David Luiz and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 70th and 74th minutes having eventually seen the Gunners fight back for a key three points.

Leno’s errors

Post-match, though, the main talking point was not Arsenal’s comeback, nor Partey.

It was instead the rather questionable display of Bernd Leno.

The German was at fault for Wien’s only goal of the game, with his attempt to play out from the back having led to an easy opener for the Austrian outfit:

This was followed by a further two mistakes on Leno’s part as the clash wore on. Luckily for Arsenal, though, neither of these errors proved as costly as his first.

Nevertheless, a rather worrying stat has since emerged – Jordan Pickford and David de Gea aside, Leno has now made the most errors leading directly to goals of any Premier League goalkeeper since the start of the 2018/19 campaign:
