Goalkeeper Bernd Leno was hailed for his superb save from Michael Antonio’s 5-yard header, helping Arsenal retain 3 points at the Emirates Stadium in the last round in the Premier League.
Arsenal 1-0 West Ham
Arsenal has won hard against West Ham in the 29th Premier League this season. It was thanks to the player who came on the bench, Alexandre Lacazette and VAR, “Gunners” only got 3 points before West Ham.
Arsenal host West Ham at home in the context that coach Mikel Arteta’s team has won two consecutive matches in the Premier League front. However, West Ham has caused a lot of difficulties for “Gunners” with high pressing play. In the second minute, Jarrod Bowen cut Xhaka’s cross and shot the shot towards Arsenal’s goal but the ball hit the post.
11 minutes into the match, Pablo Mari missed the ball, accidentally creating a chance for West Ham’s Antonio to escape on the right, but then the player launched a pass to fix the back of Sebastien Haller, who was standing in position. 2 minutes later, Arsenal threatened West Ham’s goal but the shot from Mesut Oezil was blocked by Cresswell with his foot.
Excellent goalkeeper completed the task
In the 56th minute into the match between Arsenal and West Ham, from the attack on the left-wing, the ball went to Michael Antonio’s head after a cross from the team. At a distance of only about 5 m, the striker headed tight and dangerous towards the Arsenal goal.
Antonio’s finish on the far corner fools the way around the corner of Bernd Leno. However, the German goalkeeper still managed to make a save, saving the home team a goal to see.
In addition to this situation, Leno saved 2 more times and helped Arsenal preserve the victory against West Ham. Witness the German goalkeeper performance, Josh Benson fans said: “Not much talk, Arsenal owns the best goalkeeper in the world right now”.
“I am so curious to know how Alisson will play if there are Arsenal defenders in front of him. He may be good, but not necessarily Leno,” TorreirAFC account emphasized.
“Defenders from Arsenal, each one’d better cut a portion of the salary to contribute to Leno. Our goalkeeper deserves this,” user Oluwagbemiga shared implicitly.
“Every goalkeeper will make a mistake. You can use one hand to count the number of times Leno makes a mistake and lead to goals, but you will need 15 hands to count the number of times this guy saves the team. As a habit, Leno makes us mention again with amazing saves, “the LTArsenal account shared.
Arsenal had a hard 90 minutes when they hosted West Ham at the Emirates. Despite launching a squad with a number of good players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mesut Oezil or Nicolas Pepe, Mikel Arteta’s army has many difficulties in front of the visitors’ disciplined defense.
The only goal was scored in the 78th minute by a player who came on for Alexandre Lacazette. That was the situation when the umpire caught Ozil’s offside before the player came out and headed the ball to Lacazette. However, after referencing VAR, the referee determined Ozil was not offside, and the goal was recognized for Arsenal.
With 3 points earned before West Ham, “Gunners” had 40 points and rose to number 9 on the chart. Arteta’s army extended the unbeaten circuit in the Premier League to 8 and was 5 points behind Chelsea’s Champions League position.
