It took more time to get newly-signed central midfielder Mohamed Elneny into the starting lineup than we probably liked, but when he finally got his chance to prove himself he took the opportunity and ran with it.

Following five quality performances in the month of March, topped off with one of the few notable shifts versus Barcelona that included an incredibly well-taken and executed goal in the second leg, Elneny was chosen by fans as their Player of the Month for March.

His movement and showing for the ball while not in possession was and still is something that the club hasn't seen much of from a deep-sitting midfielder, Elneny showed he can be counted on to be a trusted link between the back four and the attack. Further, if the rumors involving Granit Xhaka have any substance, Elneny's game would easily translate with his arrival since there are many who believe Elneny's true impact is a bit further up the pitch.

Either way, congrats to Mohamed Elneny on a job well done.
