The talented teenager looks like a great prospect.
Arsene Wenger changed things up for the game. He brought the likes of David Ospina, Calum Chambers and Mohamed Elneny into the first-team whilst teenager Alex Iwobi again got a chance to shine for The Gunners.
The Nigerian born youngster is the nephew of Jay-Jay Okocha and today was playing in the role uncle Okocha often played.
He played in the hole behind the striker, rather than out wide. He put in a good performance in the position and he is continuing to look like a top talent for the future at Arsenal.
Unfortunately he was taken off and not many Arsenal fans were happy about that.
Iwobi looked like he was growing into the game before being taken off and it was a shame he did not get a full 90 minutes.
Here is how the Arsenal fans reacted to his performance on Twitter...
Iwobi for the ox? Wrongest sub ever. As for you, flamini... you are such a waste! #afc— Abdul..... (@le_toir) February 20, 2016
Iwobi elite baller, better than Memphis for sure— Mateusz (@afc_Mat) February 20, 2016
Well done Iwobi..always done well whenever he's played....#afc— salaudeen olayinka (@ykgunnerz) February 20, 2016
Iwobi is really really good. So intelligent— Bradley Powell (@Powelly16_AFC) February 20, 2016
Two positives from today... Iwobi was very good & think Elneny would be a decent partner to Coquelin in the middle... & in the hat.. #Afc— Rob Jones (@RSENAL1981) February 20, 2016
Iwobi looked promising today again. The guy has potential.. Disappointed we drew thou.. #AFC— 'Bakky Olanrewaju (@BakkyAFC) February 20, 2016
Frustrations aside, was really impressed with the performances of Iwobi and Chambers. Fantastic talents! #AFC— Abhilash. (@AbhilashSanyal) February 20, 2016
Iwobi is actually so football smart at 19— Musty (@Musty_AFC) February 20, 2016
Taking off Iwobi instead of Flamini was the mistake, for me. Iwobi was our most composed player in possession.— Stefan (@Stefan_AFC) February 20, 2016
Shouldn't have taken Iwobi off.— Arsène Cross (@don_cross_AFC) February 20, 2016
