Alex Iwobi marked his full Premier League debut with an outstanding goal in Arsenal’s 2-0 win at Everton – and their supporters are getting somewhat excited about the latest young gun to emerge from the ranks.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder, who impressed in the Gunners’ 3-1 midweek defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League, once again got the nod to start ahead of senior forward trio Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Joel Campbell.

Deployed on the right flank, Iwobi dovetailed superbly with Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck, who put Arsenal 1-0 up with a slick finish following an outstanding passing move.

Iwoibi, who was starting just his sixth match for Arsenal and only the second in either the Premier League or Champions League, impressed supporters on Twitter with his performance.

Iwobi was handed the man-of-the-match award by broadcasters BT Sport afterwards as Arsenal ended a difficult week by narrowing the gap on leaders Leicester to eight points.
