Fans react to Mohamed Elneny’s performance against Middlesbrough

Arsenal Fans

Mohamed Elneny has received mixed reviews for his display in Saturday’s Premier League affair with Middlesbrough.

The Egyptian was signed in January as a direct alternative to Francis Coquelin, but the arrival of Granit Xhaka during the summer has limited his playing time.

With Xhaka serving a three-game suspension while Santi Cazorla nursed an Achilles injury, Elneny was handed a rare start this weekend.

However, it was an outing to forget as Aitor Karanka’s men held Arsenal to a frustrating 0-0 which saw the Gunners fail to take advantage of having 75% possession.

Elneny was one of a few changes to the starting line-up from Wednesday 6-0 thumping of Ludogorets and so the 24-year-old’s impact was watched closely by fans.
