Fans react to Elneny’s display vs Man United on Twitter – Are they right?
The Arsenal faithful have made their thoughts about various players very clear following Saturday’s display against Manchester United.
This weekend saw the Gunners come close to succumbing to another defeat at Old Trafford after Juan Mata’s strike which came 20 minutes into the second half.
Olivier Giroud’s late equalizer changed the mood for the better as Arsenal left with a share of the spoils on Saturday but several fans were hardly elated.
The man withdrawn for Arsenal’s super sub was Mohamed Elneny who was in action in midfield against the likes of Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba.
The Egyptian star was replaced after 70 minutes and it is safe to say that most of the plaudits did not go his way.
Here were the reactions from Gooners…
Elneny is a tidy player but a limited one. He can play the DM role well, but not the Santi role. Playing Coq+him is like playing for a draw.

Wilshere loaned out,Ramsey pushed to the left wing and Xhaka dropped to accommodate Elneny.
Imagine thinking that makes sense.

We are in November and Xhaka is a top drawer player, to select Coquelin-Elneny when he's available is odd. He needs to be playing.

What today told me (player wise) Jenkinsons poor, stop playing Ramsey on the wing, you can't play Coq & Elneny, Alexis needs a 2 wk break!

Love Elneny but he seems to be a solid “7” rating player. Decent but not exceptional at anything. Safe and puts in a shift. #afc
