    His weakness has always been from crosses.

    In terms of 1on1 scenarios and reflexes he's as good as anyone in the league. But he needs to command his box better to actually be worth mentioning with other top keepers.

    Does Emery not trust Leno's kicking.

    I swear, every goalkeek seemed to be taken by a short pass to one of our defenders.

    He is a liability if he cant kick to an outfield player.

    Just think because were not overly physical up top or in midfield means Emery would rather play it out short from the back and retain possession, rather than play the percentages with aerial battles and winning the 2nd ball.

    Dunno if I agree with that tactic against a well drilled pressing side like Liverpool though.

    Has the benefit of doubt as he’s usually quite solid but he made the same error twice luckily only once cost us. Was probably on the gin last night

    His handling was quite bad today. Cost us a goal and could have cost us another. Thought he was quite comfy on crosses otherwise. Expect better handling from him though

    Arsenal have recorded 13 errors leading to goals in the Premier League since the start of last season - the most of any club in the competition. Goalkeeper Bernd Leno is responsible for six of those errors.

    Sokratis shares the blame for the first goal but Leno certainly needs to improve in some areas of his game.

    Our whole system and balance at the moment allows too many chances for the opposition and this also needs to be addressed.

    Do you have link for this stat? Would like to throw it into the Emery thread where people think he is a god and going to win the league with all the amazing performances!

    Anyway we all knew from Bundesliga that Leno is average gk. He doesn'T have confidence and seems to get nervous way to often in the game. A few decent saves here and there but otherwise just not good enough.

    Excellent keeper, one of the best in the league. But not the best, ofc. Had an off day but still showed us some nice saves.

    Appalling era, he did the same thing shortly afterwards so we were quite fortunate in that regard. He's a top keeper so he'll bounce back but it has to be said he cost us a goal today and put us on the back foot.

    I think holding the ball in that situation is harder than it seems when he was at full stretch, but he would've hoped to do better.

    Still I think he made up for it with the save from Son which was top draw and he was really solid with aerial balls today as well.

    Spilled a rebound badly, but he’s the least of our worries. He’s playing in front of one of the worst defenses where the next calamity could occur without a moments notice, definitely less than ideal conditions for a gk.

    If Sokratis wasn’t lollygagging around, the ball would have been cleared as well (still a gk mistake mind you). Will reserve full judgement until we have a stable defense.

    Saved us a few times after but didn't look good at all on their first goal..

    I still have faith in our German Petr Cech though.

    He ought to practice catching the ball or to parry it better. It's not a new problem, we've seen the same from him a few times last season and I remember saying it back then too. Teams will try to exploit this weakness.

    With regards to penalties, it's tough to say because players in the league have got better at taking penalties. Very difficult for any keeper to save them.

    Given the date, he was probably distracted by guilt.

    Something looked off with him today. Not his usual self. Was actually good with dealing with crosses, his biggest weakness but struggled with a couple of shots. The most disappointing for me wasn't actually the way he parried the shot that led to the first goal, but how slow he seemed to get up for the rebound. Usually he is very quick at that.

    Still a good keeper who will save us far more points than he will cost us.

    Really should be doing better for that first goal. Having said that, he was left to do it alone after being abandoned by his defence in that moment.

    Instead of looking at Leno’s past let’s look at him since he joined? After a shaky start he really sorted himself out and its fair to say that the only keepers better than him in the league are Ederson and Allison?

    He’s not Xhaka or Mustafi, think he gets a pass here.

    (I missed the first goal and am about to watch the highlights, I might come back in here in a very different mood:lol:)

    He’s a very good keeper, but he needs a long run of error-free matches now. He’s proved that he’s capable of winning you points with incredible saves. Just needs to do the basics right for very long stretches between blips to be considered elite imo.

    He's been very good so far, our best keeper since Lehmann. His shot stopping is world class.

    Every keeper has a mistake in them. People forget Cech against West Ham a few seasons back and he's suppose to be brilliant in the air.

    For the goal yesterday, his parry wasn't the best, but sokartis needed to be more alert. He started off their attack by leaving his position then was lazy in getting back and anticipating the parry.

    Leno is the least of our problems. in fact £20m for him was a bargin, when you compare him to Kepa.
