Arsenal of England attacker, Alex Iwobi may have put to rest all criticism following him of recent, as his goal and display in Saturday’s victory over Huiddersfield Town won over many Gunners’ fans.
Footballlive.ng can report that, in contrast with vitriolic that trailed the Super Eagles star the previous weekend, when he gave away the ball to help Manchester City dump his side, it is a different tale this time out.
Iwobi put Arsenal ahead after 15 minutes when he volleyed home a cross from Sead Kolasinac and his effort to a deflection on its way in.
The Gunners’ former under-21 team captain had another chance in the second half but his shot was stopped by the opposing goalkeeper.
Iwobi was then replaced by Joe Willock in the 88th minute, but Arsenal fans and independent pundits are unanimous that former Eagles skipper, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha’s nephew had one of his best games for Arsenal.
The encounter saw Iwobi grab his third English Premier League goal of the season, as he ended a seven game streak without scoring, and rave reviews continue following his exploits at John Smith’s Stadium.
A special blog of The Gunners’ fans, Arsenal Station gave him eight marks out of ten, and named him their best player on the evening.
Their citation read in part: “Iwobi. 8/10. Easily our best player. Scored the opener and almost had another in the second half. A constant threat going forward. Great to see.”
