Arsenal coach  has stated that Egypt international is fit to face in FA Cup on Saturday.

Elneny made his debut for The Gunners in the domestic cup against Burnley, playing the entire game that saw Arsenal win 2-1 and advance to the fifth round. However, Elneny is yet to feature with Arsenal in the Premier League.

The French manager said that the 23-year-old midfielder has a very good chance of appearing against Hull, which could be Elneny’s second start at Emirates Stadium.

“Elneny is fit. He is one of the players who could get a run out there,” Wenger said in a press conference.

“He is mobile, he is a very good player. He is adapting at the moment and I thinl he is there now. We will certainly see him against Hull. He has a chance to start. I will, as always, play a team who has a good chance to qualify. The normal squad is involved on Saturday and we will play a usual strong team,” he concluded.

Arsenal are set to face Ahmed Elmohamady’s Hull City in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
