Arsenal have continued to sign the praises of their number 17, Alex Iwobi following his imperious display against Watford in the Premier League on Saturday after coming off the bench to see his side win 2-0.
The Nigerian was at the heart of both goals scored by The Gunners, first forcing Craig Cathcart to score an own goal and was involved in the build up to Mesut Ozil's goal.
Manager Unai Emery hailed Iwobi during the post-match press conference, saying the winger has the quality to play right or left and can go past players on the pitch.
In their review of the game, Arsenal wrote on their official website : ''But it was the introduction of Alex Iwobi on 63 minutes which did most to ignite Arsenal's forward play, and the Nigerian was heavily involved in both goals, the first coming after the youngster got away on the right flank, stretching the play and forcing the own goal from Craig Cathcart.''
