Bayer Leverkusen mocked Arsenal after Petr Cech almost scored an own goal during Sunday's 2-0 loss to Manchester City.

Goals from Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva saw Unai Emery's first competitive game in the defeat at Emirates Stadium.

However, it could have been worse for the Gunners after their attempts to play from behind almost failed.

Cech, who lost several passes on the day, threw a pass for the first time to Mustafi who traveled alone by his post.

The mistake quickly went viral on social media, and fans also questioned why the veteran closer had started before Bernd Leno's new signing.

And Leno's old club, Bayer, also got involved, responding to a fragment of the error with two tweets that said: "We could meet a boy", and "In case everyone was wondering how to play from behind".

The second tweet featured an accompanying video of Leno who comfortably passed defense last season and started a goal play.

Explaining the decision to start Cech, Emery said: "We want competition with the goalkeepers and all the squad players," he said. "The position is the same as that of the others and the same possibilities exist for all the goalkeepers.

"Today, Cech played well and has this experience of defending our goal, Leno is starting with us.

"He's working very well, he played very well in the preseason, but he can wait for his moment to come."
