Alex Iwobi had a night to forget for Arsenal tonight in the UEFA Champions League.
The Nigeria international was largely ineffectual going forward and managed to score an own goal, which ended up costing Arsenal the win.
The Gunners will now need the Bulgarian side Ludogorets to come away from Paris with a point if they are to finish the group in pole position.
Arsenal fans swiftly took to social media after the game to make their feelings known about the young winger. Some fans even likened Iwobi to the former Chelsea man Shaun Wright-Phillips.
Iwobi seems to have what I call Shaun Wright-Phillips syndrome. Always takes on one too many defenders and gives the ball away

Iwobi isn't ready for the first team

Take a look at Martial now, with no confidence again. Iwobi can end up like that. Blistering form to a frustrating one. This is worrying!

Iwobi deserves some bench time, too caught up in his image , these young players make too much money

Iwobi. Please someone explain who this guy is and why is he so involved?! Dreadful player.

However, at least one ARsenal fan managed to keep a cool head after the game to publish the following tweet.
I don't like the Slag him off as he so young but Iwobi needs some time out of the team give Chamberlain a chance

Iwobi has provided a total of just three assists in 15 apperances for the north London based club so far this season. the 20-year-old has also made 8 apperances for the Nigeria national team.
Arsenal – who are unbeaten in their last 17 games in all competitions – take on Bournemouth in the Premier League this weekend as they look to return to winning ways.
