Arsenal boss Wenger: Elneny start a possibility
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that he will hand Egyptian international Mohamed Elneny his first start in Saturday’s FA Cup clash against Burnley.
Since joining the Gunners during the January transfer window, the 23-year-old midfielder has made it to the Arsenal bench twice against Stoke City and Chelsea, but has yet to make his debut.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger dropped a major hint on Friday that Elneny will start against Burnley during his press conference, “It is a possibility [that Elneny will start], I will look at him tomorrow,” he said.
He added that Egyptian has impressed in training with his technique and agility, “He has good technique, good vision, very mobile and agile.”
He then concluded his remarks by saying that Elneny is capable of playing in multiple positions, “He is naturally a box-to-box player who is a bit more defensive minded that your usual box-to-box midfielder, so he can play in several positions in front of the defensive or go box-to-box.”
It is worth noting that Arsenal currently occupies the third position in the Premier League table with 44 points, just three points away from the top of the league.
