Arsenal’s unbeaten run in all competitions reached 14 last weekend as they came back from one down to level with Liverpool. But Gunners fans will feel they have one up on their opponents, despite the game finishing level, after seeing what Alex Iwobi did to Reds defender Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Iwobi has been one of a number of players to undergo a transformation as Unai Emery takes the reigns, with the Nigerian looking like a different player as he gets to grips with the new system.
The 22-year-old has chalked up one goal and three assists in eight league appearances after playing just 437 minutes of a possible 720 in those eight appearances.
Introduced late on in the Liverpool clash, the twinkle-toed winger found himself on the left wing as he vied for the ball with young Three Lions right-back Alexander-Arnold and, upon dispossessing the number 66, proceeded to do something magical.
Here’s how Arsenal fans reacted on Twitter…
Sent Trent back to the academy

That’s as good as Henry skinning Danny Mills at the corner flag.
