A section of the Arsenal fanbase didn't hold back in their analysis of midfielder Mohamed Elneny on Wednesday after his Carabao Cup performance against Championship side Brentford.

The Gunners largely cruised to the win thanks to a brace from Danny Welbeck, and although Bees veteran Alan Judge was able to pull one back through a delightful free kick, Alexandre Lacazette sealed Arsenal's 3-1 win in added time.

The result currently has the north Londoners on a run of winning six games on the bounce across all competitions, but a small section of the Arsenal fanbase still aren't happy with a few aspects of life in the post-Arsène Wenger era.

Gooners took to social media during their win over Brentford to lay into midfielder Elneny for his performance. The Egyptian was far for Arsenal's worst player on Wednesday, but a lack of playing time certainly showed on the pitch at the Emirates.

The 26-year-old made just his second appearance of the season during the win over Brentford, having previously played the full 90 minutes against Ukranian side Vorskla Poltavain in their opening match of this season's Europa League.

Elneny only recently signed a new contract with Arsenal and is now tied to the club until 2022. Although there was a vocal section of the fanbase which appears to want the Egyptian moved on in the next transfer window, most supporters seem more than happy having the former Basel star for squad rotation.

The midfielder will likely drop back to the bench when Premier League action returns this weekend due to the partnership of Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira. Arsenal host Javi Gracia's high flying Watford on Saturday, before travelling to Azerbaijan to face Qarabağ.
