Arsenal are back in Europa League action on Thursday night as they face Swedish outfit Ostersund in the first leg of their round of 32 clash.
Winning the Europa League might be Arsenal’s only chance of playing Champions League next football when considering that they are currently sixth in the Premier League table – eight points off fourth-placed Chelsea.
The Gunners are the overwhelming favourites to beat Ostersund, who are playing in their first ever European season.
Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny, who is valued at £9m by transfermarkt.co.uk, posted an image on social media ahead of the flight to Sweden, with the 25-year-old pictured alongside Mesut Ozil.
As expected, the Arsenal fans filled the response section with comments about the Egypt international, who has made 21 appearances in all competitions this season.
It would be fair to say that the club’s supporters are split when it comes to Elneny, with the midfielder producing some decent performances, but some poor ones also.
