Players With Most Errors Leading To Goals Since 2018/19 Revealed

Players With Most Errors Leading To Goals Since 2018/19 Revealed

Bernd Leno is the Premier League's most error prone player since the beginning of the 2018/19 season, when it comes to his mistakes costing his team a goal.

Whenever a goalkeeper makes a mistake it's far more noticeable than when a midfielder or a striker makes one, that's because it inevitably leads to a goal.

So it's not surprise that the list of players whose mistakes have led to goals in the Premier League since the start of last season is littered with goalkeepers and, unfortunately for Arsenal, Bernd Leno tops the lot, according to talkSPORT.

1. Bernd Leno, Arsenal - 6 errors leading to goals.

Leno's problems with errors leading to goals shines a light on an overall issue for the Gunners with Unai Emery's side also topping the charts when it comes to clubs as a whole.

Arsenal players have made errors that led directly to goals 13 times between them since the start of last season, with Fulham making 12 last season to stay second in the table.

If most people are surprised not to see Granit Xhaka in the list, after his latest blunder led to a penalty on Sunday in the north London derby, then have no fear. The Swiss midfielder has made 7 errors himself leading to goals since he joined the Gunners at the start of the 2016/17 season.

Emery's side have a battle on their hands to get back into the top four at the end of the season and qualify for the Champions League and they aren't helping themselves with so many errors.
