‘He was outstanding’,’Very good player’ – Some fans praise Arsenal star after Saints show
Much of the Arsenal faithful took to social media to praise one of the players who featured in the Gunners’ attack on Sunday against Southampton.
The Gunners were back in form last Thursday as they thrashed BATE Borisov 3-0 at the Emirates stadium to advance to the round of 16 of the Europa League.
The match saw Alex Iwobi run the show in Arsenal’s attack, as a response to several fans who have been bashing him over the past three to four months.
Iwobi has not always been at his best for Arsenal this season, but the young Nigerian star has displayed on several occasions that he has the potential to become a consistent performer for Unai Emery’s side.
The midfielder, who broke into the Arsenal first team three years ago, produced another brilliant performance on Sunday as he helped the team secure a very vital three points against Southampton at home.
Thus, Iwobi was certainly not criticised by most of the fans this time…
Iwobi was outstanding today!

Unpopular opinion: Alex Iwobi is actually a very good player.

Rate him or not, Iwobi drives the team on more so than any other player. He still needs of course, but I personally think he's coming on nicely

Iwobi playing superbly *again*. Mkhitaryan also looking dangerous. Where does Denis Suarez fit in this team?
