Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny asks for a different treatment from the fans and to stop the online abuse.

Mohamed Elneny

, who has been so much criticism on social media, has issued a plea for

Arsenal

fans to start supporting their players instead of letting the online abusers insult the players who are experiencing a bad game.

Elneny insists that the fans should support the players instead of making fun of them or insulting them when they make a mistake.

Elneny told

Sky Sports

ahead of a Premier League meeting with Everton on Friday:

"I need you to support me - not to put me down. Supporter means you have to support.

"Not waiting for me to do one bad pass and then after speak about me, or one bad game.

"You have to support in the bad moments, not the good moments. In the good moments everybody is a supporter.

"I need you when I have a bad game. When I have a bad game I need you next to me saying 'no you are good, keep going, we are next to you'.

"This will make me happy and you will make the world happy. You will make me improve more because I can see the support next to me."

He has also talked about his relationship with the Gunners boss insisting that, unlike the previous coach, Arteta gives the players opportunities when they show a good performance in training.

"If you are good you will play, if you are not good you will be on the bench, or you will be out of the squad.

"This is what I love from Mikel Arteta because it is fair. If you train good and you train hard and you are ready to play he will give you a chance to play.

"This is what I missed before with Emery. He wasn’t giving me a chance to play and that’s why I get a chance to go to Turkey and prove myself and I come back and I’m happy about myself now."
