143 touches, 122 accurate passes; Mohamed Elneny stars as Arsenal beat Watford

The Egyptian midfielder was hugely impressive in the Gunners' 4-0 win.

Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny was in fine form at the Emirates as his side beat Watford 4-0.

The Gunners were hugely impressive on Saturday afternoon as they got revenge for their FA Cup exit at the hands of the Hornets last month.

Arsene Wenger’s side were dominant from start to finish as they scored more goals at home than they have managed in their last six home games combined.

One of the men who was key their victory was midfielder Mohamed Elneny, who put in an impressive all-round display as he continues to impress since joining in January.

As illustrated by the table provided by Opta, the Egyptian was heavily involved throughout.

He managed 143 touches throughout the game, with just one of those proving unsuccessful, the most of any Arsenal player.

His passing was particularly impressive as he managed 122 accurate passes and enjoyed a passing accuracy of 96%, both again the best of any Gunners player.

Defensively he was a rock throughout, posting two tackles won, five defensive duels won and two interceptions.

His most impressive defensive stat was his number of ball recoveries though, as he achieved a total of nine during the game.

A superb afternoon from Elneny then, who is fast proving to have been a very smart signing by manager Arsene Wenger.
