Bernd Leno raised eyebrows before the game with his choice of the first-choice stopper and he would go on to suffer a nightmarish result. Within two minutes, Runarsson was partially at fault for City’s first goal, when he failed to claim Oleksandr Zinchenko’s cross, which Gabriel Jesus then headed into the empty net.
After receiving criticism from fans following two mistakes during his side’s Carabao Cup quarter-final loss to Manchester City, Arsenal goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson has deleted his Twitter account.
In the 54th minute, the Iceland international let Riyad Mahrez’s free-kick slip through his hands, with Pep Guardiola’s side adding two more goals before the final whistle without reply.
The mistakes resulted in some fans sending abuse via Twitter, resulting in Runarsson deactivating the account (@runaralex).
