What's everyone's thoughts on Elneny partnering Partey as a solid CDM pairing.

I remember Gilberto singing Elneny's praises but I failed to see it but I'd value his opinion over mine all day long.

He said that told Elneny was the closest thing the Gunners currently have to him or Patrick Vieira. Not sure if that's a compliment as our midfield had no one but stil.

I would love to see a sold pairing like Petit and Vieira - that doesn't involve Matteo, Torriera, Granit, Dani or anyone really. Perhaps Elneny is the best of a bad bunch but I think there was more to his comment then they.

For me - Partey and AMN. Both tackle, both have pace, both strong and both young plus permanent players.

That could be the spine of a 4 4 2 or a midfield diamond with a creative gem in front of them.

62 - you like Dani ( loaned ) and Partey - I'm not a fan as Dani is not permanent, bit lite weight and just doesn't do it for me in a CDM pairing. Perhaps he could be the hardworking Parlour on the right and we have an extravagant luxury left winger like Overmars. I just don't think he's strong enough but would love some Friday pm banter!

Hi SY for me Dani does put in a shift defensively and is creative offensively so I'd like to see a Dani Partey for two in the middle but of course we all know that no matter what we would personally choose is always a non starter because of the elephant in the room that is Xhaka. Xhaka has always been a certainty to play under Arsene Emery and Arteta.
I think Elneny has done well since his return but to be fair there were always plenty worse than Elneny well before he was loaned out.

Gunner as I’ve said TP and GX just done score enough goals, that’s 2 players hardly scoring, PEA is so far out of it to get copious chances in a game, Pepe . say no more . It’s a difficult one mate but those two together could cause us issues.

I agree Banbury mate, I wouldn't pick Xhaka myself but for all 3 of our managers he's numo uno on the team sheet.

Think we will see Mikel’s first choice midfield in a 4 3 3 formation.

Granit, Partey and Dani - Partey just makes that look so much better.

Hopefully we see that and Tierney back as a left back in a back 4.
