He'll make a very good defensive midfielder, he's so hard to get past. The signs where their in his cameo at WBA, all about getting the chance now. Whether that is here remains to be seen.

Offered something in the midfield, energy, physicality, pace, which I believe we lacked a bit prior to coming on and it felt important to getting the result. Definitely a good option in certain games, and more importantly, game situations; definitely a better option than elnenny

Have to wonder of the plea via social media is going to come out as some elaborate plot on ‘All or Nothing’

Arteta doesn’t strike me as the sort of guy who’ll play someone a couple of times if they didn’t fancy them, just because they posted on social media, whether it’ll be some sort of a dare or training ground prank.

Thought he was very good when he came on, better than Partey. Cleaned up the midfield.
He’s like a budget Wan-Bissaka at RB but with the skill set of a basic midfielder added on top.

Felt he did really well as what he was asked to do, just don’t expect him to be breaking lines with his passes just yet.

Has been okay, so a good start imo. Strange to see him play after the conflict though, so does Arteta bin him straight after Xhaka and Elneny come back?

It's weird to see "fast" players in midfield. It is refreshing to see Sambi and him, and Partey of course, get to the ball first sometimes, rather than needing to defend because they're all so slow.

Xhaka's injury has just presented AMN with the most significant moment of his career, so let's hope he takes advantage of it.

He's been pushing for the opportunity to play CM for us for years, and finally he's getting his shot. And not only is he getting his shot right now, he will be part of a young Arsenal team with a bunch of young English players pushing to break into the England squad.

Saka is already an established international. Then we have White and Ramsdale who are part of the pool, but far from being established. And right behind them we have ESR who is pushing hard for a call up.

Right now Saka, AMN, White, Ramsdale, and ESR are all pushing to be a part of the England setup. AMN's chances look slim because England have Rice, Phillips, Bellingham, and Henderson as their four CM, but injuries happen and AMN's versatility could be helpful too.

Also, if AMN doesn't seize this opportunity youngsters like Patino and Azeez are waiting to pounce and make the step up to the full squad.

Who knows how well AMN will play over the next 3 months, but it will be great for all of us if he capitalizes on this opportunity. Another Hale End graduate to celebrate would be great.

Hope he lets my guy run wild in midfield now. If we see Elneny over him we riot.

Total riot if Elneny gets a serious run of games. Considering he'll be playing for Egypt in January, it makes even more sense to give AMN and Lokonga minutes now.

Arab Cup in a couple of months as well. Pray he’s going to that 🙏🏻
