elneny ozil spurs

Saturday’s north London derby produced a few surprises but to some Arsenal fans, the biggest one was the display of Mohammed Elneny.

The Egyptian midfielder had to wait until last Sunday to make his first appearance in the Premier League, seeing out the final 20 minutes of the defeat at Manchester United as a substitute.

Many did not expect Elneny to be handed a start in the clash with Tottenham Hotspur but the former Basel star showed no nerves as Arsenal snatched a 2-2 draw despite the sending of his midfield partner Francis Coquelin.

Indeed, the 23-year-old has left such a good impression on most fans after Saturday’s performance that some are calling for Arsene Wenger to change his formation to keep Elneny in the starting eleven.
