Mohamed Elneny had an influential performance in Arsenal’s hard-fought 2-1 win over Rapid Wien in their Europa League opener.

The first-half didn’t see any chances as both sides failed to make any shots on target.

Just five minutes into the second-half, Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno mistakenly passed the ball to Rapid Wien striker Taxiarchis Fountas who found the back of the net.

Less than ten minutes later, the German goalkeeper nearly cost his side a second goal after he mis-passed the ball yet again but managed to save the second ball.

In the 70th minute, Nicolas Pepe whipped in a free kick to David Luiz inside the penalty area who lobbed the ball over Strebinger.

Then in the 73rd minute, Elneny’s through pass to Bellerin inside the penalty area broke Wien’s defensive line. The Spaniard then produced a low cross to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who tapped it in the goal, completing the Gunners’ comeback.
