Bernd Leno: Arsenal can forget about winning Europa League with repeat Olympiacos performance


It was a frustrating night for Aubameyang and his performance typified that of the whole Arsenal team, who failed to get out of second gear.

And Leno has warned his team-mates that they cannot afford to play that poorly again if they are to achieve their aim of winning the Europa League and qualifying for the Champions League.

“We need to be 100 per cent every game,” he said. “If we play like today then we won’t reach anything this season.

“I think we suffered today and it was not necessary. I think because in the first 15 or 20 minutes we controlled the game, but then we’ve made too many easy mistakes and in the second-half we conceded the goal and then everybody was nervous.

“We made it hard for ourselves and, like I said, it was not necessary. In the dressing room it was quiet because everybody knows that it was not a good performance from us. We cannot change it anymore but the positive thing is that it was a warning.”

Given Arsenal’s lead from the first leg, an Olympiacos upset always looked like a tall order – even after their heroics last season.

However, when Youssef El-Arabi struck in the 51st minute, there was a glimmer of hope for the Greek side.
