Arsenal goalkeeper, Bernd Leno, has praised his teammates’ response after his error saw Liverpool take the lead in their Premier League clash on Saturday.
Arsenal went behind shortly after half-time when their goalkeeper parried a cross to the edge of the box, with James Milner guiding the ball into the back of the net.
The Gunners fought hard and finally got a deserved equaliser through Alexandre Lacazette late in the game, much to Leno’s relief
On Liverpool’s goal, the German told Arsenal’s official website, “It was a cross; it was a little bit unlucky for me because it was in the middle and Milner scored.
“But the reaction of the team was perfect. After two or three minutes, we had the next chance to score. That shows the character of this team.
“The manager has a new philosophy. Many things changed, because Arsene Wenger was here for a long time.
“It was clear we needed time but like you saw today, the movement and the confidence of the players are always getting better.
“Today we controlled the game against a big club, against big players, and now we’ll keep working.”
