Revealed: 71% of Arsenal fans would start Elneny vs Man City

Arsenal will face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday and many will be concerned with how the Gunners will fair against the runaway Premier League leaders.

The Emirates Stadium outfit will need to sure up their leaky defence ahead of their day out at Wembley Stadium, especially after they suffered an embarrassing 2-1 defeat to Swedish side Ostersund in the Europa League on Thursday.

Although Arsenal will need to attack Pep Guardiola’s team, perhaps a defensive body should be used in the midfield to try and help reduce the number of attacks the Citizens could potentially have.

With Mohamed Elneny the only defensive midfielder on the club’s books, following the departure of Francis Coquelin to Valencia in January, it would make sense for the Egypt international to feature.

The Egypt international, who is valued at £9million by Transfermarkt, could be seen as a better fit than the likes of Aaron Ramsey or Jack Wilshere.

A number of supporters would appear to agree with those thoughts, as 71% of Arsenal fans would start Elneny in the cup final according to our poll.
