Alex Iwobi took to Instagram to praise Arsenal after their dramatic 2-1 victory over Burnley on Sunday afternoon.
The Nigerian winger also lauded the club’s fans as the 10-man Gunners leapfrogged Liverpool and Tottenham, who both dropped points on Saturday, into second place in the Premier League.
Posting on his personal profile, Iwobi said: “Everyone dug in today and showed our determination to get the three points.
“Fans were amazing and kept singing ‘til the end.”
Alexis Sanchez’s 98th minute penalty secured the three points for Arsenal after Andre Gray also scored a penalty in stoppage time to equalise.
