Arsenal fans praise Bernd Leno despite conceding two against Southampton

Bernd Leno saved a penalty.

Bernd Leno was let down by his defence once again, several Arsenal fans are saying.

Arsenal drew 2-2 at home with lowly Southampton in yet another disappointing result. The winless run goes on and Unai Emery faces increasing calls to walk.

The German stopper saved James Ward-Prowse’s penalty but the English midfielder tapped in the rebound. Arsenal were eventually saved by a 96th-minute equaliser from Lacazette.

Leno has made the most saves of any goalkeeper in the Premier League. This is a testament to his fine form but it also highlights a major concern with Arsenal’s defence. The Gunners are conceding way too many shots and Leno does not have a chance.

Arsenal fans took to Twitter to praise Leno after Saturday’s draw with Southampton. Despite conceding two, he impressed with his overall performance and his penalty save. Here are some of the best tweets.
