With Mesut Ozil ruled out with an injury, Iwobi, 21, impressively filled the creative void in the Gunners' attack on Sunday [1 October], scoring his first goal of the season in the comfortable 2-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion at the Emirates. Alex Iwobi, who benefited from a typically inventive piece of skill from the Chilean to score in the second half, has praised the awareness of his teammate.
The win helped us move up to 5 in the league, level on points with Chelsea and with that being out fourth consecutive clean sheet in the Premier League, we look to be back on track after the initial scare in August.
Nigerian global Alex Iwobi should score at least 10 goals for English Premier League (EPL) giants Arsenal FC.
He has now recovered from that fractured leg and has recently returned to the Arsenal first team, making appearances in the League Cup and Europa League wins over Doncaster and BATE Borisov respectively.
Aaron Ramsey put Ryan to work again after a clever cutback from Hector Bellerin, and the final chance of the half fell to the visitors, but Davy Propper's shot flew well over Petr Cech's goal. "I didn't think Alexis would find me but it shows the skill he has", stressed the Gunners forward to BBC Sports.
"We rushed and wanted to go directly to the decisive ball, we were not patient enough and we lost some balls because of that".
He said: "It was certainly a spirited performance, I certainly can't accuse the lads of not giving everything".
"I knew that after the game in Liverpool everybody would write us off and I knew it just depends on us, how much we respond", said Wenger.
Nobody can claim to have bettered that record, with even Manchester United's iconic former boss now slipping into the shadow of a man he used to enjoy regular touchline battles with. From there, the team rallied and we started to play more compact and defended well with everyone in the next few games.
"As a team, we're playing really well at the moment".
