Elneny features in goalless draw against Sunderland

Arsenal Mohamed Elneny

Mohamed Elneny featured in his side’s goalless draw away to Sunderland, as Arsenal all but mathematically dropped out the title race.

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.
