Arsenal fans think that Emiliano Martinez could replace Bernd Leno in goal now.
Leno has monopolised Arsenal’s starting position in goal so far this season, but Martinez put in a brilliant display last night.
The Gunners won 3-0 against Eintracht Frankfurt, despite putting out a very young team.
And Martinez’s display in the contest has many Arsenal fans suggesting that he should be brought in for Leno.
Excellent result. Not a great display. But lots of positives to take. Willock is excellent. Leno should be scared. Martinez if in doubt went long. No coincidence Mustafi plays and we keep a clean sheet.— ⚽DanColly⚽ (@DanColly) September 19, 2019

Arsenal fans I promise you, Emi Martinez is 10x the keeper Leno is.— GEATS (@GEATON98) September 19, 2019
Martinez should be getting more starts than Leno— Hakeem Smith (@AaSmith_) September 19, 2019
Emi Martinez has seriously put pressure in Leno for the starting spot in goal now. He was superb tonight, my MOTM tbh— Mr Saváge (@thesavagegooner) September 19, 2019
Leno is in trouble if Martinez carry on in such form!— ~ Ahmed ⚽️ (@AE49LDN) September 19, 2019
Martinez is one of Arsenal’s longest serving players, and has been waiting a patiently for his chance.
He certainly took it last night, with his distribution particularly impressive.
Leno, who cost Arsenal £19 million (BBC Sport), has not been in perfect form so far this term, with Arsenal’s defence being shaky, so there could be an opening.
That being said, it would be a shock if Unai Emery decided to drop him at this early stage of the campaign.
Arsenal’s next Premier League game comes on Sunday, when they take on Aston Villa.
