Mohamed Elneny reacts on Instagram to Arsenal win against Manchester United

Arsenal defensive midfielder Mohamed Elneny has taken to Instagram to express his delight at the win against Manchester United at the weekend.

Mikel Arteta’s side got the better of United 1-0 away from home at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty in the 69th minute proved to be enough for the Gunners to pick up all three points from the encounter.

Arsenal were awarded the spot kick after Paul Pogba committed a foul on Hector Bellerin inside the United penalty spot.

Elneny started the match for Mikel Arteta’s side and played for the entire 90 minutes, and the 28-year-old Egypt international defensive midfielder has revelled in the victory on Instagram.

Elneny wrote on Instagram: “Came home tonight with 3 very special points…. We are Arsenal 💪🏼@Arsenal #COYG

How did Mohamed Elneny perform against Manchester United?

Elneny was brilliant for Arsenal against United and formed a formidable partnership with Thomas Partey in the middle of the park.

The defensive midfielder, who spent last season on loan at Besiktas in Turkey, protected the defence and also linked up well with the attacking players.

The 28-year-old, who is a rejuvenated figure under manager Mikel Arteta this season, took one shot, had a pass accuracy of 89.9%, won one header, took 75 touches of the ball, and made three interceptions and one clearance, according to WhoScored.

Back in action

Arsenal will return to action on Thursday evening when they take on Molde at the Emirates Stadium in North London in the Europa League.

The Gunners will then lock horns with Aston Villa at home in the Premier League next Sunday.
