'Leno has quality and he suits our style'

Bernd Leno

We certainly didn't have it all our own way in the 2-0 win against Watford on Saturday and, but for a superb second-half Bernd Leno save, we may not have come away with three points.

After the match, Rob Holding assessed our goalkeeper's Premier League debut and the victory - our seventh in a row in all competitions.

on the dangers that Watford posed…
It’s always (hard) against Troy Deeney and we get on quite well. It was a really competitive and physical game and we knew that coming in, we just had to stand up to the battle and late on I think they tired and we managed to get a few passes together and score the goals.

on maintaining their energy until the final whistle…
Yeah, that’s what it was. They look to play off the second balls and work hard to get hold of them, so we just had to match them physically and we had the ability to pick them apart and score some goals.

on standing strong to keep a clean sheet…
Yeah, that’s how we got one last time out in the Premier League so it’s nice to get another and keep that run going, but we knew that with Bernd coming in that he’s got the quality. We saw it in the Europa League and the Carabao cup games that he’s good with his feet and players the style that we want to play.

on winning seven consecutive games under Emery…
He said when he came in that he wanted to bring a winning mentality and I think you get that from wins and you go into each game confident. We’re physically fit and we know that we can go and get the result
