Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta believes that Mohamed Elneny should have started against West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Gunners edged West Ham in a narrow 2-1 victory as Mohamed Elneny remained on the bench for the 90 minutes.

Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring in the first half before West Ham grabbed the equalizer through Michail Antonio as Eddie Nketiah struck late to secure all three points for Arsenal.

Speaking after the game, Arteta revealed why Elneny was dropped despite starting against Fulham a week earlier.
