Arsenal’s poor record against the top teams in the English Premier League continued on Sunday, losing 3-1 away to Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s side were in full control of the occasion, finding the net through Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.
Substitute Alexandre Lacazette did provide some hope for the Gunners in the second half but ultimately Arsene Wenger’s side fell short again and didn’t deserve to get anything out of the match.
Fans were left perplexed by the performance and Wenger’s team selection, with many wondering why Lacazette didn’t start while players like Alex Iwobi and the under performing Alexis Sanchez managed to find their way into the team.
Iwobi was at the heart of many supporters’ frustrations, believing he just doesn’t hasn’t got what it takes to compete at a level for him to be effective against the best sides in the country.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his performance…
Why does he start iwobi in big games. Lads overrated and proved zilch. Not a fan at all #afc

Iwobi has not had a good game this season. Yet he somehow finds a way to bench Lacazette. Kill me #AFC

Alex Iwobi is so frustratingly watch, hardly offers anything in the formation #AFC are using today. Poor selection from Wenger, heads gone.

No Top club would have players like Coquelin, Iwobi, ElNeny, Welbeck, Walcott, in their Squad!!! #AFC

This game was over from the start, the team sheet was awful. Alex Iwobi has ZERO business in this game. #MCIARS
