Germany international Bernd Leno has acknowledged that he has experienced a relatively good season with Arsenal. The shot-stopper started the season as the second-choice to Petr Cech in goal but he managed to secure the number one role after the veteran suffered a hamstring injury midway through the Premier League game against Watford in October.
Since then, he has racked 23 starts in the English top-flight and most of his performances have been consistent enough to please the Gunners faithful. Speaking to Arsenal.com, Leno said: “I think I’ve played a good season and of course I need time to get a feeling and adapt to the league and my new team. Goalkeeper is a special person and I think I’m now in a good moment. I will keep working over the last eight games to show my best performances and help the team. I think today I did the same like weeks before. We are in the top four and now the other teams will wait for our mistakes.”
Leno has been criticised for the odd mistake during the course of the campaign but of late, he has been in brilliant form with point-blank saves against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, which have helped the club secure valuable points. At present, Arsenal are occupying the fourth position on the table, and they are holding a two and three-point advantage over Manchester United and Chelsea respectively for the final Champions League spot.

But the men of Klopp are still trying for the title and they also play the team from Munich at the Anfield as a part of the last 16 of the Champions League. When asked which of the given that the two of the titles will be harder to get the victory in, Wijnaldum said that it should actually be the Premier league which is harder given the high quality of the teams and the consistency that they have to maintain throughout.
