WATCH: “De Bruyne would be proud” Mohammed Elneny Unlocks West Ham With Wonder Pass
Arsenal fans praised Mohammed Elneny performance against West Ham United in the London Derby. The Egyptian put in a stellar performance as Arsenal defeated the London club by a narrow 1-2 scoreline which enabled them to move above Tottenham in the Premier League table.
Mikel Arteta’s side were under pressure after learning about Tottenham’s 3-1 victory over Leicester City earlier. Arsenal showed enough resilience and grit against the Hammers to be victorious.
Mohammed Elneny’s Fine Display
Arsenal fans were particularly impressed by Mohammed Elneny’s display in the match. A truly professional display from Mohammed Elneny, despite not playing a lot this season, attracted a lot of praise from the Arsenal fans.

In the 72nd minute of the game Mohammed Elneny produced an excellent pass for Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah. The pass was of the highest quality as some Arsenal fans compared it to Kevin De Bruyne’s level. Although the movement from Eddie Nketiah was also excellent, Elneny found him perfectly. Arsenal fans called it the pass of the match.
Elneny is out of contract this summer, but has become vital for Arteta recently in the absence of Thomas Partey.
The Egyptian midfielder’s fine display in Arsenal’s last three games has certainly opened up the question of offering him a new contract. Arsenal will require Elneny’s next season with European football guaranteed at the Emirates.
Elneny has previously said that he will sign any contract put in front of him by Arsenal.
Elneny’s resuregence in Arsenal’s midfield came at a very crucial time for the Gunners. Thomas Partey’s injury and Sambi Lokonga’s poor display left Mikel Arteta no choice but to turn to the Egyptian. Elneny’s assured performance against Chelsea in a 2-4 victory at Stamford Bridge gave Mikel Arteta a much-needed option in midfield.
Mo Elneny bossing Ngolo Kanté, Bruno Fernandes & Declan Rice all in the space of eleven days. Absolutely unreal.

Elneny has really dominated a few of the world’s best midfielders in the last three games for Arsenal and it certainly caught the eye of Arsenal fans. If Arsenal do not offer Elneny a new contract, it is certain that the Egyptian will certainly not be short on offers.

Egyptian Pirlo, as Arsenal fans praised Elneny’s pass to Eddie Nketiah,who should have converted the chance. With 4 games to go in the Premier League, Arsenal will need Elneny at his absolute best to secure a Champions League spot. Arsenal face a tough test against Leeds United next weekend who are fighting to survive in the Premier League.
