Arsenal have made a fabulous start to this campaign after winning their previous nine matches across all competitions. Unai Emery seems to have figured out a winning formula at the Emirates Stadium which has seen his players perform immaculately at both ends of the pitch. Despite losing their first two matches against Manchester City and Chelsea respectively, the Gunners have been able to bounce back in grand fashion and are now just two points off the top of the table.
Iwobi’s Fantastic Start To This Campaign
One of the players who has thrived under Emery’s guidance this season has been Alex Iwobi. The 22-year-old has put in a string of dazzling performances for the North London outfit over the past few weeks which was rewarded with a start against Fulham last weekend.
Iwobi has already made eight appearances for the Gunners this term, scoring one goal while creating four assists in all competitions. The Nigerian seems to have gotten better and better with every match and is one of the primary reasons why Arsenal have been doing so well across all fronts this season.
The Lagos-born talent is speedy and is quite useful while running the channels down the left flank. He is an excellent dribbler with the ball and knows how to pick out a final pass, a valuable trait which has helped the Gunners score a lot of goals going forward. However, Iwobi still needs to improve his finishing if he wants to find the back of the net on a consistent basis and take his game to the next level.
Should Iwobi Start Regularly For The Gunners?
Going by his recent performances, the Nigerian international deserves to start for Arsenal on a weekly basis as he offers something different in the opposition half which the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan fail to provide.
His directness and desire to take on the opposing defenders should be applauded as it often leads to some wonderful opportunities inside the box. The jury is still out on his career at the Emirates, but for now, things are looking bright for the Arsenal starlet.
