Arsenal goalkeeper Leno on wonder save (& Kane): I couldn't see anything!

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has spoken of his stunning double save in their 1-1 draw at Tottenham.

First Bernd Leno blocked Christian Eriksen's close-range volley, before jumping to his feet and somehow pushing Moussa Sissoko's goalbound follow-up effort over the bar.

He said, "I don't know what happened, everything was so quick. Sissoko shot, I didn't see the ball, I just reacted: I think the best saves are always those when you don't quite know what happens!"

On the result, Leno added: "It is very frustrating because we conceded a late goal and also had chances to score with the penalty. We were a bit unlucky but that's football. The first half was good and the second was not our best game, and the equaliser was deserved for Tottenham but in the end we had the chance to [win it]."

Leno was also told Harry Kane was offside before Tottenham's equaliser.

"I didn't know that, I didn't realise during the game because everything goes so quick. That is unlucky it was offside, but we can't change it, we don't have video referees so we can't change it, we have to accept it."
