Video: Leno pulls off Save of the Season contender to rescue Arsenal against Bournemouth

Bernd Leno made a match-winning save for Arsenal this afternoon to prevent Bournemouth from rescuing a late equaliser against the Gunners.

Arsenal called on Leno’s heroics in the 88th minute of the match, Arsenal couldn’t deal with Charlie Daniels’ near post flick on from a Bournemouth corner and the ball nearly ended up in the net after a wayward clearance from Gunners defender Sokratis.

Leno had to push the ball away from goal before it crossed the line, the Germany international managed to push the ball away despite being under pressure from Callum Wilson.

This angle shows just how close the ball was to crossing the line:

Leno is starting to become a revelation for Arsenal fans and the £22m that the Gunners paid for the Germany international’s services is starting to look like a bargain.
