Leno hopes Arsenal can win more away matches

first_imgThe Gunners goalkeeper knows that the only way their team will do great things is if they can also win while visiting others.In the 2018-2019 English Premier League season so far, Arsenal has only won four of 12 away matches.This is a big contrast on what has happened at Emirates Stadium, where the Gunners have gotten a victory in 10 of 13 games.And for goalkeeper Bernd Leno, the only way Arsenal can aim high, is if it starts winning away matches.“I think the game started very badly, with a goal. And it ended with a goal for Man City and I think in the first half we played very good and we conceded two easy goals,” he told the club’s official website.“In the second half, we didn’t have the power to play against them because they had the ball all the time and we were running.”“We fought until the end but today, Manchester City did a very good job,” he added.“Yes, of course. It was very hard. But the reaction of the team was brilliant.”“We scored the goal from a corner and I think it was the worst time to concede the second goal, just before half-time,” he commented.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“Yes, of course. We need wins like today, to go back to the top four but I think we are still in a good position to go to the top four.”“We still have big games and I think we need more away wins because at home we play very good,” he explained.“We win many games at home, but I think to go into the top four again we need more away wins.”German keeper Leno is in his first season with the Gunners after being transferred to the English Premier League from the German Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen.He was an important piece of the U17, U18, U19, and U21 Nationalmannschaft but has had a difficult time to play first-team football in the senior squad.Here come the teams! 🙌🔵 🆚 🔴#MCIARS pic.twitter.com/tYcX8jef6U— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 3, 2019last_img read more
