Mohamed Elneny has won Arsenal’s Goal of the Season award for his strike against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League.

Elneny raced onto Alexis Sanchez’s square ball at the edge of the box before whipping a first-time effort around Sergio Busquets and into the top corner at the Camp Nou.

Neymar had opened the scoring in Catalonia before the 51st minute drive as Arsene Wenger’s side went on to lose 3-1 in their Round of 16 second-leg encounter with the Liga champions.

Elneny’s effort received 34 per cent of all the votes cast by Arsenal supporters, narrowly edging Aaron Ramsey’s north London derby goal against Tottenham and Alexis’s powerful drive against Manchester United.
