Bernd Leno says Arsenal have the quality to score but believes building a solid record is far more crucial for the Gunners.
Arsenal have taken seven points from their four Premier League games but have struggled with the exact identical frailties which have hampered the club in recent seasons.
Leno was guilty later parrying a shot in Erik 27, of letting Christian Eriksen a easy tap during Sunday’s north London derby against Tottenham.
Harry Kane added a second from the penalty spot but Arsenal fought to secure a 2-2 draw as a result of goals.
“We know about our personality but also concerning the quality,” said Leno. “The 3 players up top, with [Nicholas] Pepe there today, we’ve got unbelievable quality.
“They could score the chances but also score from nothing so the other teams always understand and need to bear in mind that we’ve got a lot of dangerous players and that provides us enormous confidence.
“You may see the match against Liverpool, we had just one or two chances to score if it was 0-0 therefore we could score with our caliber at the three.
“We could score against everybody but I think that the key is always the balance with the defence because ultimately that’s the most significant thing.”
Leno thinks he responded well to his early error at the derby, which could have ended in triumph for Arsenal had Sokratis Papastathopoulos’ goal not been ruled out for offside
“I believe the very first goal was a little bit unlucky,” he explained.
“I couldn’t catch the ball entirely and then I tried to get up but Eriksen scoredit had been unlucky but that is the life span of a goalkeeper.
“For me personally it was then like the group, I had to rack up. It is not a big problem simply because we surrendered a goal, I needed to stay positive and that I thought after I did a very good job.”
Leno believes Sunday’s outcome proves Unai Emery’s side may find the best of their rivals this time round although tottenham have finished above Arsenal.
“Now we showed that we can play much better than those,” he explained following the game.
“To be honest in the first half of you watched the caliber of Tottenham again it will a quite difficult fight until the end of the year and then we’ll see who will be better”
