Has Alex Iwobi won back the Arsenal fans after Chelsea display?

Harry Kane

Alex Iwobi scored his first goal of the season against Chelsea in last Saturday's clash at Stamford Bridge.The Blues looked to be cruising to victory when they found themselves 2-0 up inside 20 minutes thanks to strikes from Pedro and Alvaro Morata, but the Gunners hit back through Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Nigerian Alex Iwobi to make it 2-2 by the break.

The Daily Mail claims manager Unai Emery was disappointed with the midfielder's display on the opening day defeat by Manchester City and thus benched the Welshman.

Arsenal is in the tight spot to hold their star midfielder Aaron Ramsey amid interest from Premier Legaue rivals Manchester United and Chelsea.

For now, Arsenal and Ramsey get ready to take on West Ham this weekend after successive defeats to start Unai Emery's Premier League career. I think we need to give that calm to the players and continue working.


The good? Arsenal's attack, somnolent last week, clicked promisingly here, isolating Chelsea's weakness on the flanks and creating several good chances from cut-backs, nearly all of them in a riotous first half. This is always the way but it is clear that defensively we suffered three goals but also we had chances to do more goals. We conceded a lot of chances to Chelsea and, second half, we needed to keep control of the match better with the ball and the positioning.

However, in the first two games, the young German did not get the opportunity as Emery hinted the player is not ready yet. We fought hard for him.

The 27-year-old, who is Arsenal's longest serving player, is now in the final 12 months of his Gunners contract and is locked in ongoing negotiations with the club. "I am happy without the result". "In the process, I'm sure he is going to do a good game".
