Arsenal Give Young Keeper Leno Start in Europa Opener

So Bernd Leno will finally get his first start at goal today for Arsenal against Vorskla Poltava. The match is the first in Arsenal’s Europa league campaign, manager Unai Emery announced Wednesday ahead of today’s match that the German would start. When asked if this could open the door for more starts, Emery reported that they would review his match this week and his preparation in training and determine if he will start league matches. Petr Cech has been wildly unimpressive so far this season and given the struggles of Cech, good play by Leno will almost assuredly get him league game starts.
