Arsenal fans are in a pretty good mood tonight as they made it into the Europa League semi-finals following their 2-2 draw with CSKA Moscow.
It wasn’t all plain sailing tonight, however, with the Gunners going 2-0 down and suffering a real scare, particularly in the wake of some other fantastic comebacks in the Champions League this week.
Mohamed Elneny played a big role in calming the nerves with a solid midfield display, and he also had a rare impact going forward with two fine assists to level the game.
For the first for Danny Welbeck, Elneny could be seen watching with great intent as his team-mate raced onto his perfectly-weighted through-ball before finishing with aplomb and netting that crucial away goal.
Arsenal fans loved it as a neat little moment to sum up the Egyptian’s desire to help the team back into the game, with a passionate celebration following once he’d seen Welbeck had put it away.
Here’s how it’s gone down on social media this evening…

Love the body language of Elneny after this pass. Like a golfer watching a drive off the tee https://t.co/56bhG3snm1

ElNeny laid that ball on for Welbeck and was watching like he was at a bowling alley waiting for the strike.
