Place of birth El-Mahalla El-Kubra, Egypt
Height 1.80 m
Playing position Defensive midfielder


Played very well vs MLS AllStars.

Had a thunderbolt shot saved brilliantly by their keeper.

Looks to be becoming a player we can rely on.


Hope Wenger won’t bench him again.
With Xhaka and Coq here, and Rambo, Jack, Santi (one of 3 will play as RW), he probably won’t have much playing time.
Coq may play CB for a while, so he needs to pick up his game fast and establish himself ASAP.


Meh. Don’t think he should be starting.


Loving this guy! He’s had a very impressive pre-season. Can’t wait to see how good he’ll be for us this season.


Bossed the midfield, yesterday. He looks (naturally) more integrated than Xhaka in the system. I would like to see him into the XI against Liverpool and not the Big Granit who has time to learn and play regulary.


I’d like to see Xhaka and Elneny in a pivot and Santi in front of them as the 10.


Just spitballing here but I’d like to have ozil as our #10.


Think he’s just talking about the games Özil will sit out brah.


Yup, I’m talking about Liverpool obviously.


Noted. My bad.


I actually wouldn’t be surprised if Elneny pushes for a starting spot.

He’s proven to be technically fucking sound, and works hard too.

The competition for starting places is healthy this year. Until half of them get injured of course.


How about that for an assist?? Come on for what? 2 minutes and BOOM.


Mohamed Naser Elsayed Elneny, thanks for providing us with what lead onto be a climatic moment tonight.


Great cameo!


Really was a superb assist. He was probably brought on really to make sure Xhaka didn’t pick up another yellow, but nonetheless, even in a short sub appearance, if you can come away having done something important like that assist for the team, then it’s job well done.

He reminds me in a way of Edu. Unsung, unassuming, but chips in with an important bit when you really need to. Good going Elneny :+1:


El Matchwinning Nene @JakeyBoy


This cat has 17 posts in his thread?

Probably testament to going about his job in a professional and effective manner.


I think this guy should be ahead of ramsey in the pecking order for the deep midfielder role.



How do people of OA rate Elneny at the moment? Feels like it’s a bit quiet around him.

  • A fine squad player. Useful.
  • Top signing, future star for us
  • Very reliable and good, should start ahead of Ramsey
  • Fringe player, will fade out
  • Other, reply
