Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Alex Iwobi display v Tottenham

By Will Butcher

Arsenal fans were impressed on Twitter with the performance of young winger Alex Iwobi against Tottenham.

The two North London rivals played out an exciting 1-1 draw, that saw Harry Kane equalise from the penalty spot after Kevin Wimmer had scored an own goal.

Iwobi played on the left of Arsenal’s attack, and looked lively with his electric pace and dazzling skill causing concern for Tottenham defenders before he was substituted in the 70th minute by target man Olivier Giroud.

Sunday’s feisty North London derby was Iwobi’s first taste of action against arch enemies Tottenham, but handled the occasion well up against Kyle Walker.

Arsenal fans reacted on Twitter to Nigeria international Iwobi’s performance, with some questioning why Arsene Wenger decided to take the number 17 off in the 70th minute.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Despite making 13 appearances for the Gunners this season in all competitions, Iwobi is yet to score for the Gunners this term and add to his two career goals.

However, the academy graduate has gained a place in the side despite competition from the likes of Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

In other Arsenal news, this England international could be considered by Gareth Southgate for England’s game against Scotland.
