Leno says Wolves gave Arsenal a ‘hard game’ after 1-1 draw

Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno admitted his side had difficulty against Wolves at the Emirates today after their 1-1 draw in the Premier League.

Wolves took a surprise lead in the 13th minute via Ivan Cavaleiro. The promoted side held onto their lead for a majority of the match, but sub Henrihk Mkhitaryan saved Arsenal with an 86th minute equaliser, denying Nuno Espirito Santo and his men their fifth league win of the campaign.

“It was a hard game for us, in the first half we didn’t play our best and in the second half we had many chances and Wolverhampton had some chances as well.’’ Leno told the BBC.

“They were very deep and had fast players for the counter attack so it was very difficult for us.

“It was a difficult start because we conceded so it was easier for Wolverhampton to defend and they played on the counter so it was more difficult.”
