Martinez ‘devastated’ for injured Leno but Arsenal goalkeeper is ‘ready’ to step up

The Gunners’ back-up keeper was thrown into the action 40 minutes in when their first choice was hurt and can now expect a run in the starting XI

Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez admitted that he was “devastated” by the injury to Bernd Leno that threw the Argentine into the action against Brighton on Saturday.

Leno was forced off 40 minutes into the Premier League clash after landing heavily on his right leg under pressure from Neal Maupay.

Clearly incensed by Maupay’s actions, the keeper continued to berate his opponent even after being placed on a stretcher as Martinez was sent on in his stead.
