Arsenal Icon McLintock Impressed By New-Look Midfield

Mohamed Elneny 8

Reports are out claiming that Arsenal hero Frank McLintock is impressed with their new-look midfield.

McLintock believes Arsene Wenger has solved his midfield woes through Mohamed Elneny and Francis Coquelin.

He finds the midfield duo similar to Leicester’s successful pairing of N’Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater.

McLintock, 76, told talkSPORT: “From Arsenal’s point of view it [Watford] was a really good performance, especially in the centre of midfield – Elneny and Coquelin.

“They’re a little bit like Leicester [midfielders N’Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater] – they let one go forward, the other one’s holding. And if Coquelin wants to go Elneny will hold his ground.”
