It has been revealed that Arsenal shot-stopper Bernd Leno currently possesses a dismal record that the club should be concerned about.

His £20million move from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2018 has appeared to be relatively successful at first viewing.

However, the 26 year-old is actually the owner of the worst clean sheet record of ANY Arsenal goalkeeper in Premier League history.

The Gunners’ No1 has managed to keep a clean just once every FIVE games, with no other goalkeeper in the club’s recent history boasting a record worse than three.

Leno, who replaced Petr Cech in goal has picked the ball out of his net 11 times in eight games so far this season – the second worst record in the Premier League’s top eight.

Arsenal have conceded 11 times in 8 games this season

He’s kept just two clean sheets in that time – with shutouts coming against Newcastle and Bournemouth.

Amongst his predecessors, Leno’s clean sheet record is not one to admirer.

His current tally is one every 4.9 matches.

Petr Cech holds the second-worst record at a clean sheet every 2.8 games – level with Wojciech Szczesny.

Manuel Almunia (2.5), Lukasz Fabianski (2.6) and Jens Lehmann (2.7) all sit in the middle of the pack.

But it’s Alex Manninger (2.1) who leads the way, ahead of David Ospina (2.3) and David Seaman (2.4).
