Arsenal midfielder Iwobi: Why Lacazette goal so pleasing

Postado Fevereiro 11, 2019

Alex Iwobi has been one of the most divisive players at Arsenal ever since his debut.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright is of the opinion that the club's fans are embarrassing for their unfair criticism of Nigerian global Alex Iwobi.

Against Huddersfield Town, though, Iwobi was the former for the Gunners.

Huddersfield pressed and harried but rarely troubled the Arsenal goal in the first half, with the difference in quality showing as the visitors doubled their advantage through Alexandre Lacazette's 10th league goal of the season a minute before halftime.

The Gunners have now slipped down to sixth place in the Premier League standings and boss Unai Emery will be desperate for his men not to drop points at Huddersfield.

Ian Wright, therefore, told the fans to stop being the unusual and get behind the players so as to expect a better result in subsequent games.

Speaking on Match of the Day, via the Daily Star, Wright said: "What I like about Iwobi - someone who does take a lot of stick from the Arsenal fan base - is that he continuously tries to get forward".

"So when the goal went in it was a great team move and I was also happy for Laca to get the goal as well".

"But we're talking about a young player who has got a lot of ability and a lot of promise about him".

The Gunners next fly off to Belarus for the first leg of their Europa League Round of 32 match against BATE Borisov on Thursday night.
