Takehiro Tomiyasu shares what RC Lens player told him after he missed his big chance

Arsenal star Takehiro Tomiyasu missed a huge chance to score against RC Lens last night.

The Gunners suffered a 2-1 defeat at the Stade Bollaert-Delelis in the Champions League yesterday. Lens definitely deserved the win, but Mikel Arteta‘s men had plenty of chances to score themselves. One of them fell to Tomiyasu.

The Japan international is a fantastic player, but the one thing he hasn’t done yet in a Gunners shirt is score a goal despite playing over 60 times for the club.

In the second half last night, Tomiyasu had a huge chance to find the net from a corner. He was left free inside the box and ran into a cross, but his shot was straight at Lens goalkeeper Brice Samba.

Speaking about his big chance, Tomi said: “The goalkeeper (Samba) told me it was a lucky moment because he didn’t react.

“I needed to put it into the net but I’ll have to score the next one”
