Mohamed Elneny says Arsenal will “fight until the end” of the Premier League season after their title hopes were dented at West Ham.
Mesut Ozil, Alexis and Laurent Koscielny all scored for the Gunners at the Boleyn Ground but Andy Carroll’s hat-trick denied them the three points they craved.
"At the start of the second half we started organising our team to win the game and step up our performance, however we conceded a third goal so we tried and pushed to get an equaliser"
Arsenal are relying on Leicester City and Tottenham to slip up - but Elneny is not giving up.
“We will fight until the end, until the last game in the league, to achieve what we want. Let’s see the final outcome then,” he said.
“Today we wanted to snatch the win even though we were playing against a strong team. Maybe the final result is not this much in our favour, however we are doing our best in each game.
“We conceded two goals at a very hard time. We should have ended the first half 2-1 up but the equalising goal came at a very crucial moment.
“At the start of the second half we started organising our team to win the game and step up our performance, however we conceded a third goal so we tried and pushed to get an equaliser. We finally did that but we couldn’t snatch the win in the end.
“We are fighting for the league title, this is why we had to play in an offensive mode to win the game, but thanks God for the final result. The best is yet to come.”
