Eliminated by war
Since the original Cup goalkeeper Martinez has already transferred and left the team, Arteta also sent Leno to play in the League Cup. Facts have proved that this is a very wise employment. If it were not for the main goalkeeper, Liverpool may have already smashed the gunners. Eight yuan. Before the end of the first half, Red Army new aid Jota took a header from close range. Seeing that he was about to fly into the goal, Leno jumped up and threw his arms out to shut the ball out. The poorly prepared Nanno Takushi also kicked a supplementary shot. Middle beam.
In the 53rd minute, Liverpool got another chance to shoot from close range. Van Dyke ejected from the instep about 5 meters away from the goal. Leno still flopped sideways to block the ball when the distance was so close, making the world's No. 1 central defender call. However. In the 63rd minute, Mr. 46 million Mr. Ruota turned inward and no one interfered. He volleyed in the penalty area and was still blocked by Leno.
The most miraculous save occurred in the subsequent corner kick. The red star Grujic's header was very weird. He almost fell against the beam and penetrated into the upper left corner of the goal. However, Leno lightly eased his arm and used it almost unscientific. The action completed this extreme save, allowing Arsenal to enter the penalty shootout alive.
Leno’s magical save has already made Liverpool players seem less confident in scoring. Even in the penalty shootout, the two strikers, Origi and Harry Wilson, were saved by Leno bravely, filling in the air. Penalty missed in the pit. Two penalty saves are the best portrayal of Leno's magical performance in this campaign.
Leno completed 7 saves in the game, many of which were difficult rescues. He also saved two goals in penalty shootouts. Whoscored scored 8.91 points for him. He is the best player in the game and deserves his name. Is anyone still questioning Arsenal's move to sell Martinez, the champion of last season's cup?
"The game is very difficult. We try to make a change and win another cup championship. This is my goal. Save? The most important thing is to win. For the goalkeeper, you can save your opponent's shot in a penalty shootout. It’s the most wonderful thing to have a happy smile on my teammates.” Leno said domineeringly after the game: “We experienced a disappointing battle here on Monday. The team analyzed the game and the coach gave us motivation.
Arteta said: "Leno is really good. He always comes forward when we need him. To win at Anfield, you need some top individual performances, and this is our tonight. What I have. I always have confidence in Leno. I know how great he is because he always has such a performance. We don't want to sell Martinez, but this may be a good decision for both parties.
The broadcast guest Redknapp also said: "We saw some great saves tonight. This is the contribution you want your goalkeeper to make. Leno looked extremely calm and confident in the penalty shootout. This is you. The No. 1 goalkeeper you want."
