Iwobi Set To Blow Ndidi, Iheanacho Apart


Arsenal attacker, Alex Iwobi has been cited as the lad most likely to cause trouble for Leicester City in Monday’s English Premier League clash at Emirates Stadium, London.

Should that be the case, then Iwobi would be ‘guilty’ of causing woes for his Super Eagles’ pals, Wilfred Onyinyen Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho, who are sure to make the trip with The Foxes.

Iwobi was spotted in training with The Gunners, as Arsenal held their final training session on Sunday at London Colney ahead of Monday’s tie.

Iwobi should make his sixth Premier League appearance of the season against The Foxes, but the duo of goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo and left-back Tolaji Bola will miss out, despite being involved in Sunday’s workout.

With Iwobi looking good from two back-to-back outings with the Eagles against Libya, he could be the one to help Arsenal win 10 games in a row for only the sixth time in their history at home on Monday night.

The Gunners overcame defeats in their opening two games under their new coach, Unai Emery to establish themselves as the form team in the Premier League, and could now record 10 victories on the bounce for the first time since 2007.

Arsenal also boast a formidable record at home to Leicester – winning each of their last 11 such matches and not losing to the visiting Foxes since 1973 – and so will be firm favourites to leapfrog North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the top four with another victory.
