Arsene Wenger confirms Elneny availability for Stoke, will decide role
Speaking at a pre-match press conference, Wenger said, “Elneny is available for selection, I haven’t decided yet [whether I will play him]. I have to see how everyone has recovered. Elneny is a possibility to be in the squad for Sunday.”
The first round encounter between both sides ended in a 2-0 win for Arsene Wenger’s men. Theo Walcott scored the opener, before being replaced by Frenchman Oliver Giroud who scored the second goal 5 minutes from time.
The Egyptian star midfielder will be looking to make the difference in Arsenal’s midfield, with injuries plaguing the squad currently fighting in three competitions, namely the Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League.
