Unai Emery says Bernd Leno will get more chances

Unai Emery says Bernd Leno will get more chances

If we are scoring four goals and conceding two - we are winning.

"I came to the club to play every game", Leno told the Evening Standard after that 4-2 win.

"Little by little, we are conceding a few chances to the opposition, the same like in Newcastle".

But the visiting side from Ukraine pulled two late goals back to leave Emery's team without a single clean sheet this season. We need to continue improving in all things and finding the balance and now it is very important to our objectives to improve in our defensive moments.

Arsenal currently sell seven home cup games as part of a season ticket price which is among the most expensive in Europe but, with the team now playing in the Europa League, many fans are unhappy that they are obliged to pay for these matches in order to get their Premier League season ticket.

Leno joined the Gunners in a reported £22million deal from Bayer Leverkusen in July and was tipped to become first-choice between the posts, with Cech showing signs of decline over the last couple of years.

"Each match we play, I am responsible for the group and for Torreira also", the Spaniard said.

Therefore, Matteo Guendouzi is likely to come back in to midfield while Granit Xhaka will replace Mohamed Elneny after being rested for the Europa League clash.

"My idea for each match is to arrive in the last hours to decide and say to the players my decision", he said.

But Leno has always been used to such a style of play and proved that on Thursday, with the German confident his characteristics will suit Emery in the long run. And the players who score take this confidence, like Aubameyang and also Welbeck and Mesut. The Uruguayan worldwide was impressive and I'd like to see him keep his place but I don't think Emery will risk him.
