Some Arsenal fans have hailed the performance of goalkeeper Bernd Leno following the club’s 2-2 Premier League against Norwich City on the road.

The Gunners had gone into the Canaries clash with the chance to end a seven-match winless streak in all competitions but the performance was all too familiar with the defence continue to possess a sense of vulnerability.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was instrumental in the attack as he was able to find the net for the Gunners in either half but it was ultimately left to Leno to save the side from suffering a potentially embarrassing loss.

The Germany international was kept busy for most of the second period with the Canaries trying to find the winner and he had to come up with a string of top-notch saves to hand the Gunners with a hard-fought point.

As a result, a number of Gunners supporters are grateful for the shot-stopper’s performance and some have taken to Twitter to praise the 27-year-old keeper.

Twitter Reactions:

Leno has not received much assistance from a fragile-looking backline this term and following the Norwich clash, he has made 59 saves in the Premier League, which remains more than any goalkeeper.

While the statistic makes for good reading on a personal level for Leno, it is a concern for the team, given the defence has failed to restrict the opposition players from striking at goal at regular intervals.

Sunday’s draw at Norwich has meant that the Gunners have made their worst start to a top-flight campaign in more than four decades. They are presently seven points off the top four after 14 games into the season.
