Bernd Leno identifies two reasons Arsenal can surprise Man City. Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno is confident the Gunners can shock Manchester City on Wednesday night.
Leno believes he and his team-mates can “surprise” Manchester City when they travel to the Etihad on Wednesday night.
The Gunners help kick off the Premier League’s return, following Aston Villa’s showdown with Sheffield United earlier in the evening.
“We are prepared for the situation without the fans, we have worked during the break on our mindset and our leadership,” the 28-year-old told Sky Sports News.
“We can surprise City because nobody has the rhythm. I’m sure we can have a good start.”
“Mikel knows every player and he knows the manager better than anyone.”
“I think Mikel will have a good game-plan and at this level we think we are a very good team.”
