Updated: Sep 13, 2020

Egypt international Elneny says everyone at Arsenal wants to give 100 percent.

Mohamed Elneny feels Arsenal are more aggressive in their display and every player wants to give 100 percent to Mikel Arteta.

The Gunners sealed a 3-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday, thanks to goals from Alex Lacazette, new signing Gabriel, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Arsenal were extremely effective and clinical, while Fulham created too many difficulties for themselves at the back.

However, Egypt midfielder Elneny spoke about how vital it is for everyone at the club to be united.

"We feel like we are more aggressive like everyone just wants to give 100 percent," Elneny told

"This was what we missed in Arsenal because at Arsenal we always loved to play football but we didn't care [enough] about giving 100 percent. But now we can see that everyone does, even the kit man!

"Everyone has to give 100 percent because this is a great club and everyone has to work really hard to push this club to win the Premier League, to win everything because we have quality players, we have the facilities, we have the family. Everyone is great at this club."

The 28-year-old, who was out on loan last term, has been linked with a move away from the Emirates, however, he admits he is happy with life at the club.

"I feel really happy and I have to thank Mikel Arteta for giving me a chance to play," said Elneny.

"I know it's not easy to be on loan and come back to Arsenal and I'm really happy because I made everyone feel like I was not away from the team. This makes me really happy and I have to thank Mikel Arteta because he helped me a lot to feel like this.

"He speaks to me always, saying things like 'we need you on the team' and he is always giving me good feedback and always pushing me to get the best from me. I'm really happy to be here.

"I'll give 100 percent every day in the training and if they give me a chance to play, I will always give 100 percent. Because it's the best for me, to play always in regular games and to give 100 percent to the team, to help the team to win and make sure that we're going to build a team to be strong in the Premier League."
