Arsenal have made a fabulous start to their domestic campaign and are currently enjoying a rich vein of form across all competitions. The North London giants have emerged victorious in their past nine outings and now find themselves in the 4th place of the league table, just 2 points shy of table toppers, Manchester City.
Mohamed Elneny: Arsenal’s Forgotten Man
The Gunners have been impressive at both ends of the pitch, but the midfield has still looked a bit shaky, especially during the early matches of this campaign. It is evident from their recent success that Lucas Torreira is the best holding midfielder at the club while the likes of Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka are fighting for a place in Unai Emery’s starting XI every week. However, one player who has often been overlooked this season is Mohamed Elneny.
The Egyptian international has found life hard at the Emirates Stadium this season having made just three appearances so far in all competitions. He needs to find a way back into the Arsenal senior team or else his time at North London might be coming to an end.
At 26, he is currently at the peak of his playing career and needs to earn regular first-team opportunities if he wants to prove his worth in the English top-flight.
What Does Elneny Add To Emery’s Team?
The Egyptian talent is a midfield beast who primarily operates as a deep-lying h0lding midfielder. He can create plays for his teammates while also doing the defensive ‘dirty work’ at the centre of the park. One could argue that the Mahalla born midfielder would put in a much better defensive display in midfield than either Guendouzi or Xhaka as he is more physically dominant and can distribute the ball well.
The fact that Elneny has just featured in 3 matches for the Gunners this season does not bode well for his career. Maybe its time for him to switch clubs in January in search of more greener pastures.
