Elneny has soared in popularity among the north London faithful with many Arsenal fans having already praised the 28-year-old following last Sunday’s victory over Manchester United.
He was involved in one of the more stunning moments of the game, where he tirelessly ran to close down United’s Luke Shaw to ensure the England international could not pass the ball forwards.
Mikel Arteta also spoke highly of the ace, claiming he likes ‘players that have zero ego, who play for the team’.
Supporters were clearly falling in love with the figure as they took to Twitter to heap praise on him following the re-emergence of the comments from 2016.
