midfielder has stated that his goal against Barcelona at the Camp Nou last season was very special for him.

The Egyptian scored his first Arsenal goal against Barcelona in the Champions league last season, but despite his goal the Gunners couldn’t qualify to the quarter-finals and lost 5-1 on aggregate.

“My goal against Barcelona was very special for me,” Elneny told TV channel DMC Sports.

“In the first-half, Alexis Sanchez passed the ball to me but I couldn’t score as my shot was blocked by Barcelona’s defenders.

“During the half-time break, Alexis told me that I should have just shot the ball first time and not to take a touch, so I decided that I will shoot any ball first time in the second-half.

“I am very happy with my performance and my goal against Barcelona,” the Egyptian concluded.
