Elneny features in goalless draw against Sunderland
The Gunners dropped points for the second time in a week, as they failed to find a way past a resilient Sunderland defence.
Arsenal XI: Cech, Bellerin, Koscienly, Mertsacker, Monreal; Elneny, Ramsey, Ozil; Iwobi, Sanchez, Giroud
Sunderland XI: Manone; Yediin, Kone, Kaboul, Aanholt; Kirchoff, Borini, Catermole, M’Villa, Khazari; Defoe
Arsenal started the match on the front foot, as Sunderland stayed deep and only counterattacked their opponents occasionally.
Elneny started in the defensive midfield position for the second game in a row, as Wenger retained the midfield partnership between the Egyptian international and Ramsey.
Despite bossing possession, the visitors failed to break the deadlock before the final whistle, and will return to London with a solitary point.
Arsenal have dropped into fourth place behind Manchester City on goal difference, with 64 points from 35 matches, with fifth-placed Manchester United raring to sneak into the top four before the end of the season.
