Arsenal legend believes Mohamed Elneny is matching Thomas Partey’s quality in midfield


Arsenal down Man United

The weekend’s marquee Premier League clash saw Arsenal and Manchester United face off.

United headed into the tie on a fine run of form which had seen them put five past RB Leipzig in the Championship League a few days prior.

Arsenal, meanwhile, had looked ok of late but their record away to the ‘big six’ clubs was of course a concern for the Gunners ahead of kick-off at Old Trafford.

Despite generally struggling against the bigger teams, though, Arsenal would dominate the majority of the tie on Sunday.

And the north Londoners were eventually rewarded for their efforts 69 minutes in when Pierre-Emerick stepped up to convert a spot-kick afforded to Arsenal after Paul Pogba fouled Hector Bellerin.

Mikel Arteta’s side were then able to hold on for a 1-0 win, picking up their first league away win against a ‘big six’ side since 2015.
