Arsenal fans slam Mohamed Elneny for his performance against Vorskla Poltava

Arsenal remained top of the Europa League’s Group E as their young guns put in an impressive showing in a 3-0 win over Vorskla Poltava on Thursday night but, of the few senior players who made the trip to Kiev, there was one who stood out like a sore thumb.

The arrivals of Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi have seen Mohamed Elneny become a spare part at the Emirates and his most recent performance has hardly given Unai Emery a headache ahead of Sunday’s north London derby.

The Egyptian scored a joint-lowest match rating of 6 on the night – he made no tackles, just one interception and was outshone by the likes of Joe Willock and Emile Smith-Rowe, both of whom scored.

Leicester City are interested in the former Basel man after the Sun reported that he could be sold to help finance a swoop for Pablo Fornals and the 26-year-old has done little to change Emery’s stance on his position at the club since.

Here’s how Gunners fans reacted on Twitter, with some branding him as one of the worst they’ve ever seen in red and white.
