Red raw: Iwobi has showed encouraging signs in his few senior starts

By Emma Sanders

Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi sent out a confident message on Twitter ahead of his side’s north London derby against Tottenham on Sunday afternoon.

The in-form attacker was feeling positive on social media ahead of the clash and referred to a “winning feeling” in his post prior to the game at the Emirates.

Arsenal have not lost a game since their opening weekend defeat against Liverpool in the Premier League and go into Sunday’s clash on the back of a 3-2 victory against Ludogorets.

Iwobi has been in great form so far this season, making 13 appearances and starting seven league games in attack alongside Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Theo Walcott.

The Gunners currently sit at the top of the Premier League, level on points with Manchester City and Liverpool while Tottenham have endured a run of poor form.
