Arsenal midfielder, Mohamed Elneny, has revealed he and his teammates knew they would beat Manchester United at Old Trafford, even before they got their goal.

The Gunners ended a 14 year wait for a win at Old Trafford with a 1-0 win over the Red Devils on Sunday, after Aubameyang coolly converted from the spot.

And Elneny, who was one of the visitors’ best players was thrilled to record the win.

Speaking to the media after the match, Elneny said, “It feels really amazing, I feel really happy.

“It is special to win against Manchester United here.

“We know it is a long time since we won here. We gave 100 per cent and everyone worked really hard for it.

“We know how special it is for us, that’s why we gave everything to win this game.

“No [we weren’t concerned about not scoring in the first half] because we spoke and said we have to keep on our game, even if we miss.

“We knew we were going to score because our shape was really good today and everyone just gave 100%. ‘We created more chances to score. But we didn’t worry, we knew we were going to win this game.”

Arsenal are currently 9th on the league table, 5 points ahead of Man United, who are 15th, with a game in hand.
