‘He is better than Flamini and Arteta’ – Twitter reacts to Arsenal midfielder’s show vs Sunderland
A majority of the Arsenal faithful are raving about the performance of one midfielder in particular after this weekend’s Premier League fixture.
Arsene Wenger’s men secured another comprehensive victory by putting four goals past Sunderland despite being pegged back by the black cats earlier in the second half.
Arsenal’s goalscorers Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud received a lot of plaudits after finding the net with a pair of clinical finishes.
But there were also compliments for players in midfield like Mohamed Elneny who made sure the result against David Moyes’ men went the right way.
The Egyptian was making his third start in a row in all competitions on Saturday and it appears his performance did not go unnoticed by some happy Gooners.
Is Elneny what Denilson could have been? Keeps play ticking, available for pass, always busy, good shot. Denilson had all this when good.

Elneny was brought in as a squad-filler and does a great job keeping it tidy when on. Better option than Flamini and an aged Arteta anyway

Everyone talking about Alexis/Giroud MOTM. If you watched the game you should no that Elneny was the best on that pitch. What a solid player

Elneny gets a lot of stick b/c he passes it too safe at times but he's been secure in possession. Not losing possession is a skill in itself
