Elneny refuses to give up on Arsenal’s title chances
The Gunners title hopes were dented following their 3-3 draw against West Ham on Saturday, when they threw away a two-goal lead to drop two points in the league race.
The Egyptian midfielder however refused to throw in the towel, saying that his side can still win the league.
“We will fight until the end, until the last game in the league, to achieve what we want. Let’s see the final outcome then,” Elneny told Arsenal official website while explaining that they were keen to snatch all three points against a “strong team” like West Ham.
“We conceded two goals at a very hard time. We should have ended the first half 2-1 up but the equalising goal came at a very crucial moment.
Arsenal were leading 2-0 before Andy Carroll managed to equalise the scoreline through a quickfire brace in the final four minutes of the first half. At the beginning of the second half, the Gunners went down to 3-2 as Carroll completed his hat-trick, before Koscielny equalised for Arsenal in the 70th minute.
“At the start of the second half we started organising our team to win the game and step up our performance, however we conceded a third goal so we tried and pushed to get an equaliser. We finally did that but we couldn’t snatch the win in the end.
“We are fighting for the league title, this is why we had to play in an offensive mode to win the game, but thanks God for the final result. The best is yet to come,” he concluded.
Arsenal will now have to rely on Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City dropping points to close the gap on them at the top of the table.
