The Gunners are keen to end this season strong with a Europa League semi-final against Villarreal on the horizon.
It was rather drab affair at the Emirates Stadium and neither side looked likely to leave with three points - until Leno's massive mistake.
Richarlison darted down the wing and put in a low drive across the Arsenal box.
That is an absolute shocker from Leno.

Leno was expected to make a simple parry, but instead spilled the ball into his own net much to manager Mikel Arteta's dismay.
Fans have reacted to the error and they're furious at Leno pretty much costing his side the game.

As much as I love Leno he makes too many big mistakes- EMMANUEL YAW FRIMPONG (@IAMFRIMPONG26) April 23, 2021
Arsenal did think they had a penalty in the second half after Dani Ceballos went down under Richarlison's challenge.
However, Nicolas Pepe was judged to have been offside in the build-up by VAR and the penalty was rescinded.
Gabriel Martinelli had a brilliant chance to equalise in the 93rd minute, with Jordan Pickford pulling off an acrobatic save.
