Arsenal fans on Twitter found positives in Iwobi’s Everton display

For the Arsenal fans who travelled to Merseyside yesterday, it truly was a day to forget. However, some Gunners have been trying to pick the positives from the loss, and one of the few things to be happy about was Alex Iwobi’s performance off the bench, as the Nigerian winger came on and provided some creativity in the last 20 minutes.

There was a stark contrast between the performances from Everton and Arsenal. Whilst every single one of the Toffees took the game to the Gunners and looked like a classy side, you can count on one hand the Arsenal players who looked up for the fight. One of those was Iwobi, though, and the winger was the only one who was looking to probe and make things happen after his introduction in the second half.

Unai Emery looked to Iwobi as his third and final substitution at Goodison Park having already used his first two changes at the break to bring Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang into the clash. If the Gunners had any complaints about Iwobi’s introduction it would be that it didn’t come soon enough, and who can blame them considering how effective the youngster looked. Now the fans will just be calling for Iwobi to be given more game time next time out against Napoli.

The Gunners had little to celebrate yesterday, but Iwobi was their only bright spark and they’ll be hoping he can be equally as bright against Napoli and Watford in their next two games.
