Alex Iwobi reacts on Twitter to defeat on Arsenal debut

It was not a debut to remember positively for Alex Iwobi, but he remained upbeat.

Arsenal had a night to forget against Sheffield Wednesday, but not all players will be keen to erase the loss from their memory.

Alex Iwobi was one of four players to make his debut, only to see the Gunners lose 3-0 to the Championship side.

The 19-year-old took to Twitter after the game to express his thoughts and convey that he was still feeling positive about the start.

The youngster's attitude will serve him well, for other individuals could take such a loss to heart and have negative views on the night.

Iwobi will hope it is the first of many appearances he gets to make in an Arsenal shirt, and it is unlikely many future displays will result in three game losses.

The teenager is the nephew of former Bolton and PSG midfielder Jay-Jay Okocha, and showed his talent in pre-season after a prolific run for the under-21 side last season.

He did not begin to scratch the surface of his potential with his display last night, and the fact he is feeling good despite the loss shows he may yet be able to use it as a stepping stone to more successful performances.
