Arsenal fans react to Emiliano Martinez's performance in the Europa League

Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez kept a clean-sheet and looked highly impressive last night.

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.

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.
