Following the 4-0 victory over Watford, some Arsenal fans have come to the conclusion that the strongest possible line-up for Arsene Wenger is the one he named on Saturday.
Mohamed Elneny was the Gunners’ only signing from the January transfer window yet he was kept behind Mathieu Flamini until recently.
After finally being handed more regular playing time last month, the Egyptian appears to have embraced his new role as partner to Francis Coquelin in midfield.
The 23-year-old followed up his performance in the 2-0 victory over Everton with another assured display against Watford this weekend after returning from international duty.
According to some Gooners, the Premier League title race would have looked much better for Arsenal if Elneny had featured more regularly.
