Bernd Leno feels Arsenal were lucky to salvage a point against Norwich City.

Arsenal were in a thrilling contest against Norwich in the Premier League yesterday. Teemu Pukki took the lead for Norwich early on. But Aubameyang scored on either side of Todd Cantwell’s goal to secure a point for Arsenal. Meanwhile, both the goalkeepers were kept quite busy the entire match.

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has admitted that his team lost control of the match as it went deep. The German international mentioned that while Arsenal started the match according to the scripts, they were fortunate to run away with a point.

“At the end, it was confusing because in the first half we played exactly how we wanted but conceded two goals in transition. In the second half, we lost control of the game and we were lucky to draw,” the Arsenal shot-stopper said as per Independent.

“It’s always strange and sad when a manager loses his job. I think Emery did a very good job for one-and-a-half years, but the club decided to change the manager and something in the team,” the number-1 added.

“We just have to look forward and we saw the team was different (against Norwich),” Bernd Leno concluded.
