Arsenal are leading Watford 1-0 at half-time at the Emirates Stadium as they look to pick up just their second win in six Premier League matches, but Gunners fans were quick to destroy Alex Iwobi for his display in the opening 45 minutes.
The 21-year-old, who the fans had lost patience with following his showing against Brighton, last Sunday, returned to the starting line-up against the Hornets having been an unused substitute in the 2-0 win against AC Milan at the San Siro on Thursday night, but he didn’t impress the Emirates Stadium faithful with his first-half display.
While Shkodran Mustafi gave them an early lead, Iwobi struggled to make an impact in the final third for Arsene Wenger’s men, with his final product often leaving a lot to be desired.
Arsenal supporters were quick to have their say on the Nigeria international’s performance via social media, and while one said “Iwobi is having a nightmare”, another said “get him off the pitch”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

I need a greater football mind than my own explain to me what Alex Iwobi actually contributes to this team. I cannot fathom how such an average player gets start after start. His decision making, shooting, crossing and link up play are all so wayward. #AFC
