Alex Iwobi has been a different player at Arsenal since Unai Emery took over. The Nigerian international star was at it again as he registered an assist in his nation’s 4-0 win over Libya and the Gunners will be delighted to see that his levels are staying high over the international break.
Another game, another @alexiwobi assist

Every time Iwobi steps out onto the pitch at the moment the fans are left expecting something big. The young winger can play on both sides and in the ten position and has shone for club and country over the last few months. Iwobi bagged his first goal of the season against Chelsea back in August and whilst he’s still to add to that single goal for his club, his current from suggests he won’t be waiting much longer for his next one.
Not only is Iwobi a class act on the pitch, but at the moment, he’s a fan favourite off of it. The Gunners are desperate to see more of their winger and the fact that it’s currently the international break will be gutting for Arsenal fans who would love to have seen the 22-year-old putting in the shift he did for Nigeria in an Arsenal shirt. However, with Arsenal returning next weekend with a home game against Leicester, the fans don’t have to wait long.

It wasn't just an assist, it was a MOTM performance by him playing in the number 10 role. A very underutilized aspect of his game.
