Arsenal defeated Everton 2-0 at the weekend.

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny says the club’s 2-0 win over Everton last weekend was crucial as the North Londoners haven’t given up hope on landing the title, the Mirror report.

The Gunners started the weekend trailing Premier League leaders Leicester City by 11 points and with only a handful of games left, Arsene Wenger’s side can’t afford to drop any more points.

After a turbulent recent few weeks, a trip to Goodison Park represented an extremely tough game for Arsenal yet the came through in impressive fashion, all-but wrapping up the three points by half-time.

When asked to describe the victory on Merseyside, Elneny told reporters it was crucial as the squad still holds hopes of winning the Premier League title come the end of the season.

“The win against Everton was crucial. It was a good away win against a strong team,” he explained.

“The league is our only available title this season, we won't let it go easily. Arsenal is one of the best teams in the world, I feel so happy because the boss and my team-mates trust in me.”

Elneny has made a big impact since his arrival from Basel in January, putting in a number of good performances and recently scoring his first goal for the club against Barcelona at the Nou Camp.

A midfield two of Elneny and Santi Cazorla makes for an intriguing proposition, and how Arsene Wenger could do with the injured Spain international back for the remainder of the season.

Arsenal arguably need to win all of their remaining games to stand a chance of winning the title, and tough trips to West Ham United, Manchester City and Sunderland await them.
