Last weekend saw Arsenal take a 4-1 victory over West Ham United as we now begin preparations for the departure of long-standing manager Arsene Wenger.

With us also preparing for the Europa League semi-final tie against Atletico Madrid on Thursday, seeing Mohamed Elneny depart the game in the 45th minute was a concern for many.
Having been stretchered off in the match, many fans feared the worst for the Egyptian and having conducted assessments and scans, Arsenal confirmed on Monday that the player had sustained ligament damage to his left ankle.
The announcement by the club stated they were ‘hoping’ he would return to action before the end of the campaign but of course, there are no guarantees on that.
Further announcements will be made in due course, and the club confirmed they were in regular contact with the Egyptian Football Association given the upcoming World Cup in Russia this summer.
Should he return before the end of the season, you would be thinking more World Cup rather than Arsenal’s final game of the year.
Thank you for all the love you showed, either in the field or outside it. Your support will make me want to heal faster, and try my best to come back to play along with my mates in the Arsenal, and assist my national team ♥️????

Ahead of the Atletico game though, it’s certainly a blow to our plans.
Get well soon Elneny. Hope you still manage to play in the World Cup. ?

He'll make the world cup at least. Egypt can't do without their best player.
