#AVLARS 2 positives: 1.) Mat Ryan – solid, made a couple of good saves, his distribution was on point, and he was also very good in the air. The goal wasn’t his fault. 2.) Martin Ødegaard – yes, he missed THAT chance, but his passing and attitude were great. Made an impact. #COYG
Leno should return for the Gunners’ next league clash against Leeds United at home. However, the performance of Ryan is a positive going forward with Alex Runarsson, who was the previous back-up option, being far from impressive with his shot-stopping.
Ryan has been registered in the Gunners’ Europa League squad with Runarsson being left out. With Leno set to remain the first-choice in the league, Ryan could be handed a starting role in the knockout phase of the European competition.
