He might not be a regular starter in the first team but Alex Iwobi is certainly impressing when he does get his chance to feature for the team.
Arsenal fans have showed their appreciation for the Nigerian’s solid impact he made when he came on from the bench again against Watford on Saturday with the score goalless, with the Gunners going on to claim a 2-0 win at the Emirates much to the relief of those who used their Paddy Power promo code on the match in north London.
Iwobi replaced Aaron Ramsey in the 63rd minute and brought some much-needed energy to the team who at that time was struggling to create chances and were being outplayed by the Hornets. The 22-year-old made a similar impact in last weekend’s match against Everton when he replaced Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, posing a real attacking threat when going forward.
Some of the club’s fans feel he has done enough to earn a place in the starting team and would like to see him start more than in just Europa League and Carabao Cup matches.
Here is some of their Twitter reaction:
He has grown significantly since January. Looked very good for Nigeria and has started to have good potential truly unleashed under Emery. The pace and energy 🔥 He deserves to start ahead of Ramsey from on 👍
