'Just outstanding': Arsenal fans react to Mohamed Elneny display against Chelsea
Arsenal won out against Chelsea this evening as they finally got their season going with a fine win over Frank Lampard’s men.
Mikel Arteta’s gamble to play the youth of Emile Smith-Rowe, Gabriel Martinelli, and Bukayo Saka, paid off as the Gunners enjoyed a brilliant first-half to all but put the game to bed.
Goals for Alexandre Lacazette and Granit Xhaka had them well on their way before the aforementioned Saka tucked in a third to put the seal on the three points. Tammy Abraham scored late on to bring the Blues back into the game, but it wasn’t enough for Lampard’s men.
A number of Arsenal players impressed on the night but despite the heroics of the young brigade, it was the more experienced Mohamed Elneny who caught the eye of some supporters.
Twitter was awash with comments praising the Egyptian midfielder, with many Gunners seemingly delighted with the Elneny’s display against Chelsea this evening.
The respect levels I have for Elneny now 👏🏾
