Arsenal of England attacker, Alex Iwobi has put his side’s stunning 4-1 win against Fulham in Tuesday’s English Premier League London derby down to resilience, confidence and focus from The Gunners.

Footballlive.ng reports that Iwobi admitted he and his pals were hurt by last weekend’s 5-1 loss away to Liverpool, but added that they learnt few lessons from that setback and resolved in training that they needed to put the result behind them in order to bounce back fast.

Iwobi is now excited that The Gunners made the best of their return to Emirates Stadium on New Year’s Day, and made the best of their first match of 2019, in which he also hit headlines with an assist.

The Gunners’ former under-21 team captain insists that the players did not lose confidence after their thrashing at Liverpool.

He added that he was happy that Unai Emery’s side recovered well to secure a 4-1 victory at home to Fulham on New Year’s Day.

Granit Xhaka, Alexandre Lacazette, Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all struck in the win over Fulham, leaving Iwobi pleased to see the players bounce back so soon after such a heavy loss.

Iwobi admitted: “It was a good performance from the team, and a great response after the defeat we had so it was a good result.

“We like to make sure our opponents are scared to come to the Emirates, and we have kept that going and it’s a great win for us and for the fans.

“We just picked ourselves up in training and you just have to forget about the past but learn your lessons. We played with confidence and did well.”
