Keown hailed Mohamed Elneny for his impressive performance on Monday, saying the Egyptian improved his performance and work rate on the pitch against the Baggies.

“Xhaka looked short of confidence, I thought Elneny was the standout of the two (holding midfield players),” Keown said on Radio 5 Live.

“He came in and did very well. It is an area that concerns me – they don’t set the world alight and I don’t think they’ll frighten Europe those two.

“But Wenger believes in them, and they’ve got to believe in themselves.

“Elneny certainly did tonight, I thought there was a big improvement in his performance tonight,” Keown added.
