Twitter bemused as Arsenal decide against fielding £7m man

Arsenal fans on Twitter are bemused as to why £7m signing Mohamed Elneny continues to miss out on a starting berth.

The Egyptian arrived from Swiss giants Basel earlier this month to provide strength and depth in the holding midfield role following Francis Coquelin’s injury.

Such an area has been a problem for the Gunners for a number of years, with the likes of Mathieu Flamini and Mikel Arteta not wholly convincing as the anchor man.

However, manager Arsene Wenger opted to field Flamini in the holding role next to Aaron Ramsey in today’s crunch tie with growing ever bitter rivals Chelsea.

The decision has perplexed the Gunners faithful on social media, who have seemingly never been convinced about Flamini’s ability in the role across his two spells in charge.

With the game today being such an occasion for Arsenal, who look to return to the top of the table, fans continue to be confused.
