Arsenal fans on Twitter call for Alex Iwobi to up his game

Alex Iwobi is a funny player at The Emirates. The Nigerian winger has trickery and flair in abundance and when he really gets going he’s tough to stop. However, he’s off his game a lot more than he’s on it, and the Gunners have been calling for him to add some consistency and step up under Unai Emery.

The poor form and stagnation that Iwobi showed under Arsene Wenger is something that Emery won’t sit around and accept, and for a time the Nigerian youngster did step up his game to another level, impacting games from the bench and from the start with his directness, however, now the fans want to see the 22-year-old add some more end product to his game.

From attacking midfield and out on the wing, Iwobi has contributed just ten goals and 23 assists in his 118 games for Arsenal’s senior side. Those numbers just aren’t good enough. If they were the numbers of a central midfielder then it would be easier to understand, but with Iwobi occupying much wider attacking areas, it seems ludicrous that he hasn’t done better in his time with the Gunners, and that’s exactly why the fans want to see him step up.

The Gunners are desperate for Iwobi to step up or leave, and if he can improve his game then the fans will be delighted as they love an academy product.
