Leno - The areas we’re improving in

Bernd Leno in action against Liverpool

Saturday’s match against Liverpool was probably the biggest test of Bernd Leno’s nascent Arsenal career.

Our goalkeeper was kept busy throughout at Emirates Stadium, and after the game, he spoke to the media. Here’s what he said:

on if he’s satisfied with the draw…
A little bit. I think we had more chances with them. We played very well and we deserved to win, but the way we played was very good.

on Liverpool’s goal…
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.

on the team’s approach…
The manager has a new philosophy. Many things changed, because Arsène 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 is always getting better. Today we controlled the game against a big club, against big players, and now we’ll keep working.

on the team’s objectives this season…
A trophy and qualifying for the Champions League.
